Edmund Clark / Here Press / softcover, spiral bound, 2014
British publisher Here Press continues it's collaboration with photographer Edmund Clark. His work on Guantanamo and more recently "Control Order House" have received both critical acclaim and have been received well by our clients. This publication in the form of a wall calendar documents Bagram Airfield, American army base in Afghanistan, using Taliban poetry, the landscape paintings by an Afghan painter which adorn the inside of the base and photographs of this enclosed space. A dense essayistic approach to documentary photography and a continued reflection on the West's involvement in this area together with a superb production make this a highly recommendable book object.
