This powerful document of the spiritual and physical state of exile now contains 10 new images by master of photography Josef Koudelka. The sense of mystery that fills these photographs - mostly taken during Koudelka's years of wandering through Europe and the United States since leaving his native Czechoslovakia - speaks of passion and reserve, of his `rage to see'. The brilliant accompanying essay by Robert Delpire invokes the soul of man in search of a spiritual homeland; it speaks with a remarkable and unforgettable dignity.

Review quote

'The images evoke feelings of alienation, disconnection and love' - The Plus Paper 'Exceptionally beautiful images ... everything Czech photographer Josef Koudelka captures speaks deeply of the endurance of the human spirit ... Master photographer is a term that's bandied around far too much, but here it is more than justified' - Amateur Photographer
