IMAGINE: REFLECTIONS ON PEACE

In Ethics, Photography, Photography News on August 8, 2020 at 8:15 AM

For students of politics, history, philosophy, or anyone interested in a more comprehensive understanding of the opposing forces of war and peace and how peace can prevail; the book, IMAGINE: REFLECTIONS ON PEACE will be published on October 6th, 2020.

IMAGINE is an initiative by VIIF Foundation;


“This book is dedicated to those who are living in war while imagining peace, and those who are brave enough to build it.”
IMAGINE focuses on six distinct countries—Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cambodia, Colombia, Lebanon, Northern Ireland, and Rwanda—to illustrate the difficult work being done to break the foundational cycles of conflict and violence that have marked each’s immediate history.
IMAGINE provides a provocative and thoroughly insightful look at not only what the peace process means to each individual and community, but also (and maybe most importantly) the nuanced, hard-won lessons behind what it means to actually build peace.

“These searing images and moving essays teach us much about the lessons of history, the costs of war, and the overlooked challenges of achieving lasting peace. The honesty and introspection of the contributors also reminds us that the gaps that exist between peoples can be bridged; wounds can be healed; hatreds can be dissolved; and the once unthinkable can become reality — if there is a willingness to pursue dialogue and embrace our common humanity. Imagine: Reflections on Peace is a timely and important call to action.”

— Madeleine K. Albright, former U.S. Secretary of State
