Larry Towell's Afghanistan Book Reviewed

"To title a book Afghanistan is ambitious, even a little presumptuous. How can you cover in less than 200 pages and a little over 300 images the history of a country destroyed by decades of conflicts? Where do you even begin to explain the intricacies of the competing interests that have transformed these barren plains into a battleground? And how do you get those tired of hearing about a war that never ends to pay attention? Larry Towell, a veteran of Magnum Photos, takes on the challenge brilliantly. The Canadian photographer, in search of meaning amidst chaos, crafted a sketchbook that draws you in, baffles, sheds some light and disturbs." - Laurence Butet-Roch for L'Instant-Paris Match
