Book of the Week #6: The Aftermath Project, War is Only Half the Story Vol. III
After a short interlude, Book of the Week has found a new home on eyecurious books etc. This week I’m featuring the Aftermath Project’s latest book (Vol. III). The project is summed up perfectly in it’s title: “War is Only Half the Story,” and Aftermath has been doing a stellar job providing a space for the other half to be told. This volume includes work by 8 photographers, 3 more than the previous 2 volumes, and thankfully this increase in quantity is matched by one in quality. It’s great to see a group of people coming together and enabling this kind of in-depth documentary photography to continue to find financing in this not-exactly-easy media environment. Just this week they have announced that they are awarding $65,000 in grants for photo projects on the Sahrawi people, deadline, 25 March 2011, details on the Aftermath website.
War is Only Half the Story Vol. III, with work by Rodrigo Abd, Andrea Bruce, Davide Monteleone, Saiful Huq Omi, Louie Palu, Asim Rafiqui, Ami Vitale, and Donald Weber (Softcover, 132 pages, B&W and colour plates).
