Recommended to Eduardo by: Ginger
Painful to read. Troubling... but beautiful and inspiring as well. Alam comes across as deeply bitter, but unlike the rest of us he uses that to make this world a better place. Through his photography, his words, his actions, he brings truths to light. Beauty, too.

This is not a coffee table book. It's not even mostly a photography book. It's ... autobiography? Geopolitical venting? Self-congratulation? Those but also much more. From my privileged first-world position it's difficult to understand
