A powerful and thought-provoking international survey, this book presents the work of a select group of leading photographers whose concern is not to depict violence, disaster and suffering directly, but to examine its aftermath. Each body of work is displayed as self-contained sequences of photographs, with each sequence preceded by a brief artist's statement about the work shown. Timeless, meditative yet psychologically intense, and including essays by a leading group of academics on how our emotional response to images functions, this book shows the possibility for contemporary photography to question what happens and continues to happen in our world, its potential to connect us emotionally with our fellow humans and for it to provide us with an opportunity, in time, to begin to understand and find answers.
