Item description for Return, Afghanistan by Zalmai...

For more than a quarter of a century, Afghanistan has been ravaged by war, drought, and famine. In this magnificent volume, Zalma, Afghan-born photographer, returns after twenty-three years in exile to rediscover his homeland at a crucial moment of transition. Working in rich color, and frequently using a panoramic format that embraces the vastness of the sky and sand, Zalma immerses us in the ravaged landscape and the bustle of reconstruction. "My project tries to capture the resilience of a people who have rarely known peace, their optimism in the face of overwhelming odds and the very real worry that the country remains on a knife-edge and could easily slip back into a nightmare from which it is still trying to escape."

Return, Afghanistan  Sep 20, 2004
Extraordinary vibrant photographs that capture the essence of the Afghan people: their determination, strength and humanity. This book depicts images of Afghanistan that are rarely seen in the media. Zalmai is a true artist capable of highlighting the misery of human life juxtaposed against the beauty of the human spirit
