Histories Are Mirrors: The Path of Conflict through Iraq and Afghanistan
by Tyler Hicks
Publisher's Description
From the devastation of the World Trade Center in 2001, through the mountains of Afghanistan, to the ongoing battle for Iraq, Tyler Hicks' images have made history as well as recorded it. Histories Are Mirrors, the first collection of Hicks' extraordinary photographs, brings us up close to America's war on terrorism. With this inclusive view we are shown soldiers from all sides in battle and the bloody aftermath, destroyed cities, palaces, and archeological treasures, refugees and battered civilians, and the shocking reprisals that continue to travel to the United States through the news media, bringing home the savagery and profound emotion that characterize these conflicts. Histories Are Mirrors features award-winning images of the embattled regions that have come to define our national policy today-moving from September 11 through Afghanistan and into the streets of Iraq with Tyler Hicks, one of America's greatest new talents in photojournalism. Hicks' images are accompanied by discerning essays by two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporter John F. Burns and longtime New York Times Middle East correspondent Ian Fisher, whose text provides insight into the most recent upheaval in Iraq. With photographs and texts by three respected reporters on America's war on terrorism, presented here are the stark but dignified realities of everyday life during the conflicts and their aftermaths.
