In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Fazal Sheikh's "A Sense of Common Ground". Black-and-white photographs of enormous power and austere beauty in the great tradition of "concerned photography". An exquisite photographic record he made of Ethiopian, Sudanese, and Somalian refugees in Northern Kenya. Fazal Sheikh understands the true artistic power inherent in the photographic image. The photographs are presented in a straightforward yet deeply personal and moving manner. Unlike the stock photos of dark-skinned refugees we are accustomed to seeing "catalogued" on nightly news reports or weekly magazines, Fazal Sheikh's work is empowering and liberating. He forces us to pay attention to the refugee as a specific individual rather one of humanity's hopeless "masses", by giving them names, contexts, incisive, often humorous commentary, and social realities. Instead of staring blankly into his camera, his subjects give him a bit of their souls and open up to him as a "fellow-refugee" and not just another journalist/tourist. Fazal Sheikh imbues each photographic image with a dignity and humanity that will remind the reader that, despite their troubled existence, these refugees are people with hope and pride. Fazal Sheikh's unique contribution to the tradition of "concerned photography" is his conviction that each so-called refugee is a particular human being who must be seen as such by the reader and viewer. "There must be some middle ground between journalism and art where you can be honest and still be supportive" (Fazal Sheikh). An absolute "must-have" title for Fazal Sheikh collectors. <b><i>This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Fazal Sheikh. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is now collectible.

A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> 120 duotone plates, 9 foldouts. Winner of the MacArthur Genius Grant in 2005. One of the most brilliant photographers of our time. A fine copy.
