Larry Towell: No Man’s Land

Author:

This is photographer and journalist Larry Towell’s documentary account of the Palestinians. It reveals the landscape of a scarred and battered “no man’s land”-neither fully Palestinian nor Israeli-and the daily life of the people who live there. Photographed over 10 years and completed with the support of the prestigious Henri Cartier-Bresson Award (with Towell its first recipient, in 2003), this is Towell’s most important body of work to date and a landmark of photographic art and journalism. Towell describes the physical and psychological walls that divide Palestinians from Israelis and a land divided against itself in black and white photographs-many of them epic panoramas-that are simultaneously sad, haunting, breathtaking and beautiful.
