James Nachtwey’s photograph from Bucha, Ukraine, is a wartime tableau cluttered with the stuff of life. Bottles and boxes sit atop of a worn floral tablecloth. A metal bowl perches precariously on a chair. The old painted door is flung open to the darkened next room. It takes a moment to notice the lifeless body of the woman who lived there, slumped beneath the table, still wrapped in a heavy coat.
