Product description


"A collection of photographs that whiplash from beautiful to horrific, a visual compendium of what has happened on the ground during America's longest war . . . the book is a must-see for anyone with any interest in Afghanistan, the plight of women internationally or photography."--Kim Barker"New York Times Lens Blog" (08/15/2016)

"Bronstein has put together one of the richest portraits there is of modern Afghanistan complicated, conflicted, and contradictory, but always compelling. Just try to put down this book without looking at every image, without feeling each person in your gut, in your heart. It s impossible."--Kim Barker, from the foreword"

"I am impressed with Bronstein s sheer determination, grit, sensitivity to her subjects on an intimate level, and ability to give insight into lives we would never know exist. The fact that an American female photojournalist has been embraced in Afghan culture is remarkable. Her images portray the gamut of emotion an unvarnished reality of urgency, despair, compassion, understanding, and hope."--Renee C. Byer, Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist and coauthor of Living on a Dollar a Day: The Lives and Faces of the World s Poor"
