Reviews - What do customers think about Moises Saman: This Is War?

outstanding photojournalism  Feb 9, 2005
Moises Saman is a gifted photographer, and the work in this book demonstrates the unique way in which he sees the world-and the issues around him-and communicates that vision so profoundly to the viewer. Many photographers can produce adequate images, but none with the distinct style that separates Saman from the pack. "This Is War" is not only a historic document of hostile environments around the world, but an often beautiful behind the scenes look into the changing lives of those who live there. For anyone interested in current issues, and how one photographer covers those (from Iraq and beyond) I highly recommend this book.
So so  Oct 30, 2004
Run of the mill. The essays by Ryan and McAllester build up Saman's work to be of an exceptional nature. This I did not find to be true. The photography is gimmicky and leaves no lasting impressions made nor does it have much to say. More illustration than art.
No substance  Aug 22, 2004
This book attempts to show the horrors of war, but instead shows the very shallow insights of the photographer. Not the greatest photography either. I recommend books by James Nachtwey or some Magnum photographers.
