Description


For the past twenty-five years, Henry Rollins has searched out the most desolate corners of the Earthfrom Iraq to Afghanistan, Thailand to Mali, and beyondarticulating his observations through music and words, on radio and television, and in magazines and books. Though he’s known for the raw power of his expression, Rollins has shown that the greatest statements can be made with the simplest of acts: to just bear witness, to be present.

            In Occupants, Rollins invites us to do the same. The book pairs Rollins’s visceral full-color photographstaken in Bangladesh, Burma, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Northern Ireland, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and elsewhere over the last few yearswith writings that not only provide context and magnify the impact of the images but also lift them to the level of political commentary. Simply put, this book is a visual testimony of anger, suffering, and resilience. Occupants will help us realize what is so easy to miss when tragedy and terror become numbing, constant forcesthe quieter, stronger forces of healing, solidarity, faith, and even joy.
