About this title


For more than a quarter of a century, Afghanistan has been ravaged by war, drought and famine. In this magnificent volume, Afghan-born photographer Zalmai returns home after 23 years in exile to rediscover his homeland at a crucial moment of transition. Working in rich color, and frequently using a panoramic format that embraces the vastness of the sky and sand, Zalmai immerses us in the ravaged landscape and the bustle of reconstruction. “My project tries to capture the resilience of a people who have rarely known peace, their optimism in the face of overwhelming odds and the very real worry that the country remains on a knife-edge and could easily slip back into a nightmare from which it is still trying to escape.”

About the Author:

Born in Kabul, Afghanistan in 1965, Zalmaï fled his homeland in 1980 to escape the Soviet occupation. His family settled in Lausanne, Switzerland, where he studied at the School of Creative Photography and at the Center of Professional Education in Photography, Yverdon (CEEP). Zalmaï is a member of the Focale Association in Nyon. He lives and works in New York and Geneva.
