Book of the Week
by Chris Steele-Perkins
Afghanistan is a collaboration between photographer Chris Steele-Perkins and famed Afghan poet Sayd Bahodine Majrouh. In attempting to capture the continuing cycles of everyday life despite the country’s harsh reality of war, Steele-Perkins has created a celebration of Afghanistan, which he visited numerous times in the course of five years. "It was heroic, beautiful, violent, twisted, gracious, and tragic," Steele-Perkins explains. "The experience of being there works its way into one's being; an infection of the soul demanding that you return."

A photograph is a subjective impression. It is what the photographer sees ... and in the end, the whole corpus of our work becomes a portrait of ourselves.
