The Edge of Civilization

Photojournalist Eddy van Wessel has journeyed time and again to conflicted regions in order to document the lives of people and refugees there. Bosnia, Gaza, Chechnya, Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria have all been the subject of his award-winning photographs. This book offers an intimate and confronting look into the world of a conflict photographer. Through raw commentary, Van Wessel addresses difficult questions, as he repeatedly places himself in dangerous situations in order to tell a story while capturing shocking and multifaceted imagery. Links to extra documentary videos can be found on certain pages of the book using a smartphone with the mobile browser Layar.
