Details: Product Description Abbas veteran Magnum photographer of political and social conflict in Northern Ireland,Vietnam, the Middle East, South America and South America turns his attention in this collection to the Islamic world in the wake of 9/11. In over 170 compelling duotone images, Abbas exposes an inside view of a world seen by very few people in the West until now. Focusing on the resurgence of Islam everywhere on the planet since September 2001, these pictures swell with the undercurrents of global disturbance, uncertainty and threat. A member of Magnum for more than 25 years, Abbas is widely recognized as one of the most exceptional photographers of our time: these images represent some of the most memorable work he has produced, on a subject of compelling interest across the globe. Review A sprawling survey of contemporary Islamic culture.... A book like this is a chance to forge something thoughtful and lasting out of events that flashed by as confusing headlines. The photos here are presented with care and avoid the clichés of news coverage. About the Author Abbas was born in Iran and now lives in Paris. He has been a member of Magnum for more than 25 years. Magnum Photos, the world's most prestigious photographic agency, was formed in 1947 by four photographers: Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, George Rodger and David `Chim' Seymour. Their members are renowned for their intelligence in combining both reporter and artist in the photographer's role - attributes that have defined Magnum for over 60 years, and continue to do so.
