 Advance Praise for Terrain of Loss
 

      Andrea Camuto's beautiful, haunting photographs chronicle the  struggles of Afghan refugees, particularly women, as they search for  home in their war-scarred homeland. Her lens brings home the enormous  toll three decades of upheaval have exacted on women and children. Her  subjects are mothers who live in fear, children who wander through  abandoned buildings and windy plains, the horizons of their lives  tragically shortened. It is there, on every page, brought gloriously to  life: the pain, the fear, the crushing despair, but also, the dim glints  of hope, the small moments of grace.

—Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner 

This harsh reality portrayed [in Terrain of Loss] is moving and true and beautiful.

—Bruce Davidson, Magnum Photos

Darkly elegant , despite the grim reality of its subject matter, Terrain of Loss  displays the power of photography to go beyond mere art or documentary  to connect the viewer emotionally to the desperate struggle to maintain  humanity within the chaos that is Afghanistan today. Andrea Camuto's  spare photographic vision insightfully captures moments that in their  entirety leave one concerned, but even more, afraid for a world that  would allow such things to happen.      

—Robert Flynn Johnson, Curator Emeritus, Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco

Harrowing and uncompromising, Andrea Camuto's war imagery in Terrain of Loss is elegant and minimal in presentation, profoundly impacting the viewer.
