ZALMAI: DREAD AND DREAMS. Daylight Books, Hillsborough, 2015. Distributed by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 136 pp. with 92 ills. (26 col.). 28 x 31 cm. ISBN 9781942084020 In English.
Publisher's description: Afghan-born photographer Zalmai (born 1965) was forced to flee to Switzerland after the 1980 Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. His work as a freelance photographer eventually brought him back, to document the war and humanitarian crisis again unfolding there. Fourteen years after the world promised to rebuild Afghanistan, the Afghan people are losing faith in their government and the international community. Focusing on civilians and their lived experience of war, insecurity, chronic governmental mismanagement and international negligence, Zalmai encounters misery but also real hope on the ground. In this volume, which brings together photographs shot between 2008 and 2013, Zalmai's gritty black-and-white photographs present the stark reality of the situation in Afghanistan while his sun-tinged color Instagram photographs suggest the aspirations of the Afghan people. Empathetic, indignant and still hopeful, Zalmai's photographs draw attention to an ongoing struggle that has largely left the headlines.
