Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At the age of 23, immediately following the Twin Tower attacks, Kate Brooks moved to Pakistan to photograph the impact of the U.S. foreign policy in the region. It was the start of a 10 year odyssey covering world changing events, from the hunt for Osama bin Laden in the mountains of Tora Bora and the American invasion of Iraq, to Lebanon's disenfranchised Palestinian population and the country's power struggles with Syria and Israel, the protests in Egypt's Tahrir Square and the beginning of the war in Libya.

In the LIght of Darkness interweaves a selection of those images with a series of personal essays chronicling Brooks' own journey as a young woman, from 9-11 to the Arab Spring uprisings of early 2011. Her images capture the harsh beauty and poignant pain of a region mired in conflict while her words trace a personal narrative of loss--of friends, of colleagues and of innocence.

Kate Brooks' photographs have been published in TIME, Newsweek, The New Yorker, Smithsonian, The Atlantic, The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times. A retrospective of her work was on exhibit at the Southeast Museum of Photography in 2011 — www.smponline.org or www.katebrooks.com. Ms. Brooks has been the recipient of numerous awards and her photographs have been exhibited in the U.S., Europe, and the Middle East.

Synopsis:

Kate moved to Pakistan following the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the U.S. Her aim was to document the impact of American foreign policy on the region and its people in the wake of the American led operation that ousted the Taliban.

In 2003, Kate covered the invasion of Iraq and the beginning of the insurgency for Time magazine.

Kate has since worked extensively across the Middle East and South Asia, covering many of the major news stories in both regions and photographing life in the areas of conflict, as well as the key policy makers who shape events in those countries.

Synopsis:

This book is a collection of photographs and personal essays that chronicle a young woman's ten-year passage from the mountains of Tora Bora to the uprisings in the Arab world at the beginning of 2011 that led, amongst other things, to the resignation of president Hosni Mubarak of Egypt and the cruel war in Libya.

Kate Brooks' images portray the harsh beauty and poignant pain of a region mired in conflict, while the accompanying essays relate her experiences as a woman photojournalist in the Muslim world. At the age of 23, following the Twin Tower attacks, Kate Brooks moved to Pakistan to photograph the impact of U.S. foreign policy in the region. In 2003, she covered the American invasion of Iraq from Kurdistan and for Time she began to photograph the beginning of the Irai insurgency. Since then, she has expanded her focus to include life in Iran, Gaza, Pakistan, Lebanon and Afganistan - a place she returns to regularly.
