Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name held at the Stephen Daiter Gallery in 2012. Presents "Collateral Damage: The Human Face of War". "Whether it is Vincent Cianni's black-and-white portraits of gay soldiers under the contradictory and compromised reign of 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell', Stephanie Sinclair's searing color scenes of Afghan women who have taken violence unto themselves and committed acts of self-immolation, or Samantha Appleton's war-zone shots, such as a jihadi in Iraq praying alone inside the walls of a bombed-out house, this powerful show fills in the picture of the realities of war beyond the battles. Collateral damage means much more than civilian casualties and properties destroyed. It is the effect of war on individuals that will last lifetimes" (Michael Weinstein). The book features a stunning multi-panel foldout of Ashley Gilbertson's panoramic photographs of empty rooms in American suburbia. They are the bedrooms of dead young American soldiers, in the homes where they were born and grew up, left "as is" by their grieving parents: An 18-year-old man's diplomas, awards, and trophies neatly and proudly on display. Another bedroom overflowing with yet another dead 18-year-old's regalia, sports posters, and girlie pin-ups, emblems of American adolescence and virility. A woman-soldier's room decorated with lush house plants. In a way that only photographs can evoke, they are about absence and presence at the same time: The young lives snuffed out and gone, their "human remains" left behind, helping keep their memory alive. A heartbreakingly beautiful book. An absolute "must-have" title for Samantha Appleton, Vincent Cianni, Ashley Gilbertson, and Stephanie Sinclair collectors. This title is now collectible. This is one of very few copies of the Exhibition Catalog still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: All other copies available online have serious flaws. A scarce copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with black-and-white and color plates. Four of the most brilliant American photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO PETER VAN AGTMAEL TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0985952903. Bookseller Inventory # 19919
