In Henk Wildschut's powerful new book, he uses makeshift shelters to document the lives of migrants -- whether they're known as refugees, asylum-seekers or illegal immigrants -- who have traveled many miles to Europe but whose journey is still unfinished. Wildschut's photos show the remarkably inventive encampments built of waste materials in which these travelers exist, capturing the way in which this basic necessity of life shows the underlying story of violence, fear, political manipulation, desire, courage, sadness and anxiety. In focusing on the individuality of these dwellings -- an incongruously colorful quilt, a plastic tent in a field of snow -- Wildschut allows viewers to see these lives vividly, to transcend what he calls ''the platitude of photography.'' Full-color photos, a rich essay and a beautiful fold-out cover.
