Photographer and University of Vermont alumni Robert Nickelsberg’s newest book of images, Afghanistan: A Distant War, offers a stunning look at the emotional cost of war.
In it, we see Americans at work with the daily toil of battle, wearing the stress and exhaustion on their faces. We also come very close to the people Afghanistan, struggling in a variety of ways with conflict that began long before Americans arrived.
Nickelsberg will be presenting his work and lecturing at Mt. Philo Friday, May 16 at 7 p.m.
