    Book Summary

    Since the mid-1980s, the author has been photographing some of the stories: the famine in the Sudan, the conflict near the Armenian-Azerbaijan border, and the aftermath of Ayatollah Khomeini's death in Iran. This book is a journey through the eyes and emotions of one woman as she covered some of our century's searing and confusing conflicts.

    Since the mid-1980s, photojournalist Alexandra Avakian has been photographing some of the most important stories of our time: the famine in the Sudan, the conflict near the Armenian-Azerbaijan border, the aftermath of Ayatollah Khomeini's death in Iran, the PLO and Yasser Arafat, violence in Gaza. She dodged bullets daily in her effort to show the trouble in Somalia and she succeeded in understanding and photographing daily life with Hezbollah. At times she wanted to give up and return home to Malibu where her father made films. But the desire to keep finding the pictures that could tell a larger story always prevailed. After September 11, and the death of Arafat, she returned to the U.S. to photograph Muslims living in America. Her style is forever probing yet with a big heart. Her photographs grip, educate, and last forever. This book is a journey through the eyes and emotions of one woman as she covered some of our century's most searing and confusing conflicts. read less...
