Fazal Sheikh was raised in both Kenya and the United States--a dual heritage that has enabled him to witness the scores of refugees who have flooded into Kenya from Sudan, Ethiopia, and Somalia. Distinguished from most Western reporters, whose coverage of a situation would last only a few days, Sheikh spends weeks in each location he shoots, producing photographs which are a refreshing antidote to the clichés of photojournalism.
This book is an excellently reproduced, beautifully presented volume of Sheikh's extraordinary work, featuring numerous fold-outs.
