Synopsis : A deeply compelling look at a tumultuous country, Larry Towell's photographs are at once powerful and compassionate, revealing a country of violence, heartbreak, strength, and dignity. Magnum photographer Larry Towell first traveled to El Salvador in 1986 as a member of a human rights delegation. Since the beginning of the civil war in 1979, 50,000 people had been killed, 25 percent of the population were refugees, and death squads terrorized the nation. The war ended in the early 1990s and Towell had thoroughly documented both the war and its aftermath. Towell is perhaps one of the finest photojournalists since Cartier-Bresson. In these haunting photographs, we see a world in which everyone becomes a combatant and every place a war zone. Yet amid the brutality and death there is a harsh beauty people grieve and move on; peasant women wash clothes and nurse infants under the eyes of soldiers; children with hopeful faces forage the dumpsites for food.

Description de la librairie : The Reader's Corner is such fun,it's too bad you have to buy our books on line. We have eight foot tall outside bookshelves across the entire front of the store. There is a money slot in the door for night sales, which go to support National Public Radio. Inside, which can be too crowded at times, are surprisingly good books, only 1% are ever listed on-line. We also sell records, music cd's, comic books, mags, computer software and games. Best of all is the found art decorating every spare spot.
