"TEARS OF THE LEVANT BY CARSTEN STORMER

German reporter Carsten Stormer has been documenting the war in Syria since 2012. "Tears of the Levant" is his record of that time. Carsten Stormer experiences the brutality, but also the heroism of humankind. "Tears of the Levant" is a very personal book, a six-year journal of horror, defeat and heroism.

Sebastian Junger wrote: "TEARS OF THE LEVANT is the finest account of war I have read in a long time. Gorgeously written and powerfully rendered, the book submerges you in the confusion and dilemma of war without romanticizing or proselytizing. This is the real world, and Stormer drags us into it without apology but with an infinite amount of compassion and grace."

"Carsten Stormer is a brave, idealistic war correspondent and filmmaker known for embedding with some of the world's most doomed and erratic rebel groups. With gravity and humor, this emotional memoir describes his journey to the limits where empathy flirts with lasting trauma." - Nell Zink

"Carsten Stormer has written a book that is at once deeply moving, highly authoritative and striking in its' beauty and brutality. The face of conflict is broken down to individual lives, with finesse and fine writing. It is a book that deserves to be read, and Stormer’s is a voice that should be listened to." - Janine di Giovanni

"DREAMYLAND” CAMBODIA . FACES . PLACES. BY SIMON TOFFANELLO
"Maximalist" Cambodian environmental portraits.

Simon Toffanello applied for the Lens Culture Portraits Awards 2019 this month, with a portrait of his "DREAMYLAND” Cambodia . Faces . Places

A series of narratively driven portraits representing a cross section of everyday Khmer society and its underclass. An attempt to showcase a slowly fading "other worldly" dreaminess innate in a developing country speeding towards consumerism and economic gain at all costs. The series utilises studio portraiture, landscape photography and composite techniques usually associated with commercial advertising photography, aiming to blur the aesthetic boundaries between art, social realism and the advertising world.
