Publisher's description: "In my experience, the two most significant characteristics of war are horror and absurdity," says Christoph Bangert, the German photojournalist who has been documenting crises for international publications such as the New York. Following his examination of the way our society deals with graphic images in his critically acclaimed book War Porn (Kehrer 2014), in his new book he confronts the bitter absurdity of war. He opposes our cliched notion of modern war as a dynamic, dramatic, and heroic experience with his calm and composed, but equally odd and alien images of the wars in Afghanistan, Gaza, Darfur, Lebanon, and Iraq.
