Author-illustrator Gareth Hinds recommends The Photographer: Into War-torn Afghanistan with Doctors Without Borders, written and illustrated by Emmanuel Guibert, “I think this is one of the most powerful graphic novels ever written. Guibert is a master of subtle human drama, and the added verisimilitude of the photos interspersed with the drawings really brings home the reality of the events in this memoir about a Doctors Without Borders mission into remote areas of Afghanistan. We vividly experience the dangers and the cultural differences encountered in these areas, where there is no modern medical care and the villages are controlled by tribal warlords.”
The Photographer: Into War-torn Afghanistan with Doctors Without Borders (First Second Books, 2009) is recommended for young adult readers.
