Auteur: Matthews, Jenny
Titel: Women and War
Renowned photographer Jenny Matthews has spent the last 20 years travelling the world and taking photographs. She has visited many countries affected by war, including Nicaragua, Mozambique, Rwanda, Angola, Sierra Leone, El Salvador, Colombia, Afghanistan, Burma and Croatia.This book of photographs offers a unique record of women's involvement in war, forming a visual diary examining what happens to women both during and after conflict. Most civilian casualties of war are women and children. These photographs show the many roles women play: watching, avoiding, coping, confronting, participating; and the emotions they experience, anger, fear, despair, joy, hope, terror, anxiety and depression. Each photograph has an accompanying diary entry that provides the story behind the image, and throughout the book there are images that challenge notions of truth and objectivity.
