Afghanistan: Hope and Beauty in a War-torn Land by Ursula Meissner
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Journalist Ursula Meissner wants to shake us up about Afghanistan and help its people. Her photographs and stories tell of a land at a crossroads, of the magic of an unknown country and the horror of recent events, as well as of the bravery of its women; from the roses and fields of poppies at the foot of the Hindu Kush to a pair of red high-heeled shoes that are a symbol of hope. Even after decades of violence Afghanistan has preserved its magic.

Author Biography

Ursula Meissner worked in the Southeast Asia bureau of Germany's ZDF TV before trading in her keyboard for a camera. Her first photo essay documented the siege of Sarajevo in August 1992. She has worked as a freelance photographer in war zones around the globe for 15 years. From Afghanistan to Sierra Leone, and Kosovo to Iraq, she puts a face on the many victims of war and humanitarian catastrophes. Her photographs have received numerous awards, and have been published internationally.
