Hardcover cloth bound, edition of 750 numbered copies. Essay by Ian Jeffrey, with text in English and German.

“The premise of Liebchen’s brilliant, intriguing little book is that the photo-reportage of war… is a genre, a set of predictable conventions… Using sly allusion and knowing observation, Liebchen takes ‘ordinary’ documentary photographs [of a city in Albania], yet builds up a picture of a city racked by the tense atmosphere of conflict… The false narrative delivers the clichés adroitly—the shattered windscreen, the children with guns—until even the shadow of a figure on the ground has sinister connotations, and we are ready to believe the worst at every turn… Liebchen’s postmodern reportage tells us to trust nothing—neither the tale nor teller” (Parr & Badger II).
