Robert King: Democratic Desert

41,00

Since February of 2012 Robert King has documented an unprecedented tragedy of the blatant targeting of civilians and hospitals by the al-Assad regime as well as a number of other serious human rights violations and war crimes. As the conflict is entering its third year there has been little, if any, international support from democratic leaders to end the killing despite the fact that over 100,000 Syrians have been killed, and over 28,000 that have gone missing. 4.5 million Syrians are displaced within their country and over 1.5 million Syrians are now refugees in neighbouring countries.

“As a photographer it is not my job to aspire towards aesthetically pleasing images of war that are palatable to the public or the photographic community. Many viewers find it easier to condemn the image maker rather than the perpetrators of war crimes against humanity.”

Description

Democratic Desert is the first comprehensive photo journalistic book about the war in Syria. Robert King entered the country when almost all conflict photographers had left, and he stayed. This book shows a gruesome story without any constraint. It also contains a stunning essay by British war correspondent Antony Loyd, and a DVD with a forceful documentary film made by King during his stay in Syria.
