By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on March 22, 2005
Format: Hardcover
AFTERWAR: VETERANS FROM A WORLD IN CONFLICT represents fifteen intensive years of photographing and interviewing veterans/survivors of the many wars of the past century. These images and quotations and quiet thoughts and outrages are not limited to the 'unpopular wars', but to all of the major conflicts, many of them undeservedly unknown to many readers: Sri Lanka, Liberia, Northern Ireland, Bosnia, Israel-Palestine, El Salvador, Cambodia, Eritrea-Ethiopia, Persian Gulf, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Falkland Islands, Vietnam, The Middle East, Bangladesh, Malaysia, Algeria, Indochina, Korea, China, World War II, Spain, World War I. Staggering list: terrifying history of repetition and devastation of human lives and lands.

Lori Grinker is a sensitive observer and interviewer. She has created some images of people of all walks of life, social strata, sex, and backgrounds that are not only superbly executed professional photographs, they are incredibly engaging. She has elected to design this book in a way that follows a timeline - from the present through the painful pages of the past. In doing so she has succinctly outlined each of the conflicts she is addressing and in doing so brings to our attention many facts about wars that have escaped our attention.

She also has taken artistic license by creating images, such as the cover photograph, which at first glance seems to be a relaxing, floating, peaceful swimmer - or is this a patient in a treatment bath after losing the lower parts of his legs? It is that kind of mental inquiry that sharpens her lessons of speaking about the effects of war. She does not preach, she does not prejudice us: Lori Grinker simply reports.

Lori Grinker is an extraordinary photographer and she captures the essence of its long aftershocks. War accomplishes nothing, but for the historians, General's promotions, defense contractors and the minions who clean up what has intentionally been set into motion. I know. Been there, got the tee-shirt ... war is a racket and useless enterprise of men and now growing numbers of women too.

I just got home from listening to Lori Grinker lecture on her new book, After War. I am overwhelmed.

Grinker's photographs combined with the firsthand accounts of the human toll of war compel and engage on every page. Grinker poignantly expresses this tragic topic leaving each and every subject their every dignity and respect.

The quote at the beginning of the book tells the story for me "You must be the change you want to see in the world", Mahatma Gandhi. Lori with your 15 year dedication to this subject you have done your part.
