Editorial Reviews

Review

"Torgovnik is not a novelist. He is a photographer who deals with true stories. What he found in Rwanda, however, is that truth can strain the limits of one's imagination." --American Photo

"The images of the mothers and their children born of rape are both beautiful and shocking -- exquisite portraits of ordinary Rwandan women and their children and a reminder that the consequences of rape can be felt for generations." -- Louis Charbonneau --Reuters

"While Intended Consequences ever so carefully doses its measure of trauma and reconciliation, the portraits get into your bones rather than your brains." -- Cora Fisher --The Brooklyn Rail

Format: Hardcover
This is an amazing book. It is a little hard to hear the horrible stories but it also shows some amazing women. Even though I have never met these women, I can see the pain in the eyes of both the women and the children.

Wow!
Bought it for the photos, loved it for the stories. As horrible as the stories are, it was quite a new experience for me to have a photography book which brings the story behind each photo. Don't get me wrong, it is a great phtography book, I loved the technique, the pictures are taken with such care and respect, and each one tells a different story. There's a line connecting them all, so compared to other books I have, I can say it felt more like listening to an album than to a collection.
I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in photography.

The use of rape as a weapon of war and politics is made possible by silence. This book has excellent photos and tells the stories of people who might never have been heard from. Highly recommended.
