Revue de presse
"Seamus Murphy sees Afghanistan's turbulent people and its magnificent landscapes with an eye that is sometimes shockingly clear. I find his images as disturbing as they are haunting and lovely. This is a beautiful and valuable book."John Simpson"Seamus Murphy is a poet with a camera who has captured the essence of life in one of the oldest countries in the world, today under attack from one of the newest. He has eloquently captured the stoicism of a people bombarded throughout history and yet still survive."Philip Jones Griffiths --Reviews
Présentation de l'éditeur
This is a chronicle of the people of Afghanistan and their extraordinary ability to survive with grace. From 1994-2006, Seamus Murphy photographed the Taliban regime, the tumultuous years of civil war, and the historical elections following the fall of the Taliban. Alongside scenes of war and politics, his magnificent photographs capture intimate images of domesticity, work and play. This book includes a preface by "Times" war correspondent Anthony Loyd.
