Robert Nickelsberg - Afghanistan


Renowned photo-journalist Robert Nickelsberg’s photographs help bring into focus the day-to-day consequences of war, poverty, oppression, and political turmoil in Afghanistan. Since the attack on the World Trade Center, Afghanistan has evolved from a country few people thought twice about to a place that evokes our deepest emotions.

Time magazine photographer, Nickelsberg has been publishing his images of this distant yet all too familiar country since 1988, when he accompanied a group of mujahideen across the border from Pakistan. This remarkable volume of photographs is accompanied by insightful texts from experts on Afghanistan and the Taliban. The images themselves are captioned with places, dates, and Nickelsberg’s own extensive commentary. Timely and important, Afghanistan: A Distant War ($60.00), serves as a reminder that Afghanistan and the rest of the world remain inextricably linked, no matter how much we long to distance outrselves from distant realities.

Robert Nickelsberg has had his work published with the New York Times, Newsweek, the Wall Street Journal, the Financial Times, the Guardian, Paris Match, Stern, CNN, and NBC. In addition he has exhibited photographs at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the International Center of Photography and at the New  America Foundation in New York.
