Alors, ce livre ?

Un sujet passionnant et malheureusement trop méconnu, illustré par des photos saisissantes qui explorent différentes formes d'esclavages modernes. Un excellent ouvrage introductif avec une préface de Kevin Bales, l'un des spécialistes de cette question.

Slavery in the contemporary world is what it has been since the beginning of human history - the complete control of one person by another. Violence is at the heart of that control, and the aim is profit.'
- Kevin Bales

Présentation de l'éditeur :

Slavery may be illegal but it's by no means defunct (even if its guises have changed). More than 27 million people are still trapped in one of the world's oldest forms of oppression. "Documenting Disposable People" features newly commissioned photo essays by eight renowned Magnum photographers - Ian Berry, Stuart Franklin, Jim Goldberg, Susan Meiselas, Paolo Pellegrin, Chris Steele-Perkins and Alex Webb - on diverse instances of contemporary global slavery. With texts on each of these projects and an essay by expert and author Kevin Bales, this compendium explores a range of examples, including child labour in Bangladesh, sex slavery from Ukraine to Western Europe and the sexual enslavement of South Korean women by Japanese troops during the Second World War."Documenting Disposable People" shows how the unfortunate emergence of a new kind of slavery is inextricably linked to the 'ascent' of a global economy. Photographers include: Abbas (Iran), Ian Berry (UK), Stuart Franklin (UK), Jim Goldberg (US), Susan Meiselas (US), Paolo Pellegrin (Italy), Chris Steele-Perkins (UK) and Alex Webb (US).
