About this title


Zalmaï’s extraordinary and unforgettable photographs capture the slow, distressing drift of exile and dispossession. Eclipse documents a journey through ambiguous territories—from Cuba to India, Mali to the Philippines, Indonesia to Egypt, and a return to his native Afghanistan.

About the Author:

Born in Kabul, Afghanistand, in 1964, Zalmai fled his homeland in 1980 to escape the occupation of the Soviet Army. He found a new home in Switzerland, where he studied at the School of Creative Photography, Lausanne; and at the Center of Professional Education in Photography, Yverdon. Since his first solo show at 16/25 Gallery, Lausanne, he has had numerous others at museums and galleries throughout Europe. More recently, Zalmai's exhibition Afghanistan, produced by the International Red Cross, toured Switzerland, Germany, and Austria. His work has also been included in important group exhibitions, such as the World Press, Joop Swart Master Class 1997, Foire D'Arts de Bale, Switzerland, Amsterdam and Rotterdam, and Nyon, Switzerland. Zalmai has been a freelance photographer for publications such as the New York Times, Outside Magazine, the Geneva Tribune, Le Temps, L'Hbdo, and Reflex Magazine, and has covered stories in India, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Thailand, Burma, Indonesia, the Philippines, Egypt, Cuba, and the United States. He currently resides in New York.
