Hardcover, designed by Teun van der Heijden, edited by Alla Zarifyan, texts by Dima Gavrysh, Douglas Nickel.

»Inshallah (›God willing‹ in Arabic) explores the Soviet and American occupations of Afghanistan, and draws on my childhood fantasies that romanticize the military and intertwine with my past and present personal conflicts. As a Ukrainian, who was born and raised in the FSU and residing in the US, this is the second time that I live in a country that is fighting a war in Afghanistan. I create a dark fairytale filled with my fears and dreams, based on my fascination with the army’s strength and order, set on the front lines of what has become America’s longest running war in history. Mesmerized by the complexity of the Afghan chaos, I strive to better comprehend my personal relationship to these wars: two empires, two mentalities, same battlefield, twelve years apart.« Dima Gavrysh
