Comments: Hardcover, 18 x 24 cm. 96 pages of photographs plus 12 pages of interview with Luca Desienna, Co-owner and Chief Editor of Gomma Online and Gomma Books Ltd. Some very small parts of the black printing on the cloth cover are fading, as is normal with this book as the printing is very delicate, otherwise in excellent condition.

“Despite Sierra Leone being renowned for its brutal civil war, I didn’t have a hidden political agenda, a specific humanitarian issue or even a clear story in mind whilst making the book. I went to Freetown, not as a photojournalist, but as a stranger with a camera and an open heart. What I hope to have created is something the viewer can tune into emotionally. Something that hits a nerve without being coercive in nature, and without staking a monopoly on a specific kind of truth. A collection of images simply suggesting that the inextricable coexistence of beauty and dread is an ever present theme within this vigorous and inclement city.” – Kim Thue
