Product Details


“As one of the few women to do this job, Addario has been able to convey to American readers the texture of life in places they might never otherwise see, entering secret women’s schools in Taliban-ruled Afghanistan or taking a portrait of a Congolese woman heavily pregnant by her rapist. Many of the resulting photographs—here accompanied by essays from Addario and other journalists she’s worked with—are distinguished by their combination of startling intimacy and narrative scope.” —Harper’s

“Striking.”—Mother Jones

“Spectacular…a majestic collection that captures the drama of everyday existence in war zones around the world. With chapters chronicling Afghanistan under Taliban rule, the refugee crisis and women in the military, the volume is a testament to the endurance of humanity…There is no disputing the impact of this revelatory collection.” –BookPage

“This astonishing selection of photos from photojournalist Addario strongly demonstrates her conviction that by risking her life to cover gross injustices she can create visual and visceral proof of human rights violations . . . Addario’s photographs are stunning, and this book, which she dedicates to the ‘brave and resilient’ women and men she’s documented, provides unique insight into the vital work of photojournalists.”  — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
