Description
This large, beautifully produced monograph collects 15 poignant, often controversial stories by Magnum photojournalist Eugene Richards. In dramatic black and white images that fill one or two large pages, accompanied by his own written reporting, Richards immerses us in the lives of Honduran coffee growers, members of a Kansas City street gang, drought-plagued villagers from Niger, and doctors in an embattled Bosnian hospital. These words and photos chronicle the birth of a first child, an explosion of family violence, the struggle of a farming family to hang on to its ancestral home, and the unearthing of a half-hidden grave said to hold the remains of a slave.

"Eugene Richards ... one of the most respected American photojournalists, has photographed a couple of circles of Dante's hell and come back to tell the tale.... Mr. Richard's camera cuts a rude fragment from a scene, finding a jagged piece that concentrates its emotional force. He has honed a style that mirrors—with disjunctions, displacements, extreme croppings, surprises and surprising angles, and sometimes an almost unbearable in-your-face closeness—the shattered or merely alienated lives he often observes."—NYTimes
