Book of the Year: ‘Riley & His Story’ by Monica Haller
Soon after posting my Top 10 list, I learned about Monica Haller’s book, ‘Riley and his story. Me and my outrage. You and us.’ Published in November by Onestar press/Fälth & Hässler, the book consists of hundreds of photographs by Riley Sharbonno, an army nurse who served at Abu Ghraib prison from 2004-2005. But it’s Monica Haller’s stunning methodology for organizing these images that makes this the book of the year.
→With only a thousand copies in print (and most of them in Europe), I’d recommend purchasing this pronto before it sells out.
Since Monica happens to live in Minnesota, I quickly contacted her. She graciously agreed to an impromptu interview in my bunker library.
