Book Description This is photographer and journalist Larry Towell's documentary account of the Palestinians. It reveals the landscape of a scarred and battered "no man's land"-neither fully Palestinian nor Israeli-and the daily life of the people who live there. Photographed over 10 years and completed with the support of the prestigious Henri Cartier-Bresson Award (with Towell its first recipient, in 2003), this is Towell's most important body of work to date and a landmark of photographic art and journalism. Towell describes the physical and psychological walls that divide Palestinians from Israelis and a land divided against itself in black and white photographs-many of them epic panoramas-that are simultaneously sad, haunting, breathtaking and beautiful. Larry Towell lives in rural Ontario, Canada, where he was born in 1953. He studied visual arts at York University in Toronto before beginning to use photography while working as a volunteer in Calcutta in 1976....
