Gaza Photo Album.
Photographs by Kent Klich.
88 pp., 46 color illustrations, 7½x10".
Disturbingly beautiful images and gripping interviews show the annihilating effects of war through personal stories preserved on the pages of Gaza Photo Album. From the homely details: billowing, shredded curtains, chandeliers glittering in the rubble, a child’s bed in a bullet-pocketed alcove, an elegant upholstered chair standing alone in an emptied room, spring shadows of the relative peace before deadly hostilities tore apart the social fabric—yet again. It opens an intimate window into the psychology of devastation: families left homeless and broken after some of the latest attacks on one small symbolic piece of land at the very heart of the controversy in the Middle East.
