Baghdad Calling
Geert van Kesteren

388pages
9.5 x 7.5 inches
Softback
ISBN: 9059730836

At first sight this book may look like any other book of “found” photography. However, it quickly becomes clear that Geert van Kesteren’s work has a unique twist on this theme. That is, the photographs and accompanying texts are from some of the world’s hot spots. That, coupled with the immediacy of the images coming from a cell phone, offers readers the opportunity to view areas of the world that would not be considered welcoming to many of us. I might add that the editor has an excellent eye and has done an excellent job selecting and arranging the images and text. Oh  yes, the text is definitely worth reading because of the additional insight provided.
