59,00

En temps de guerre, toutes les digues cèdent, emportant avec elles les hommes dans une vague de haine, de violence et de peur. Beaucoup invoquent alors, plein de ferveur un Dieu unique, infaillible, tout-puissant. Mais où est-il ce Dieu qui incarne la paix, au milieu de toute cette folie sanguinaire ? Ce livre de Noël Quidu illustre la période entre la chute de l’Union soviétique et aujourd’hui dans le monde entier. 30 années marquées par la guerre. Il montre une image sans pitié de la folie dont les hommes sont capables lorsqu’ils brandissent leurs convictions comme un étendard. Les photographies de Noël Quidu montrent quelles conséquences certaines décisions politiques, économiques et religieuses peuvent avoir ; texte de Cyril Drouhet, photos en couleurs.

« Inédit dans l’histoire de la photographie, ce livre est un témoignage exceptionnel. Je ne connais aucun photographe qui ait couvert autant de conflits dans le monde à un tel niveau de qualité. » – Cyril Drouhet.

In times of war, all dams break and people are washed away by a wave of hatred, violence and fear. Many are fervently referring to a single true, almighty, infallible God. But where in the midst of this bloodlust is he to be found, this one God who embodies peace? This book illuminates the period from the collapse of the Soviet Union to today. 30 WAR AWARDED YEARS. It shows a relentless image of all the madness whose people are capable, who carry their convictions like a banner in front of them. These photographs show what consequences political, economic and religious decisions can have. They reflect the arbitrary behavior of those who direct the destinies of whole nations. The International Criminal Court, which the great powers have given themselves, is increasingly losing member states and increasingly resembling a holding company that pursues well-understood interests. Terror and destruction drive millions of people to flee to Europe, which appears to them as an Eldorado, but in turn watches with suspicion, while it is also the target of Islamist attacks. So the cat bites its tail.
