The latest project from the renowned cartoonist-reporter Joe Sacco. Footnotes in Gaza is a original, sweeping investigation of a forgotten crime in the most vexed of places.
Joe Sacco arrives in Rafah, the southernmost border city between Gaza and Egypt. Immersing himself in daily life, he uncovers Rafah, past and present, spanning 50 years, moving fluidly from one war to the next. Detailing the voices of Sheikhs, children, widows and fugitives, Sacco captures the very essence of tragedy.
As in Gaza and Safe Area Gorazde Sacco's unique visual journalism has rendered a contested landscape in brilliant and meticulous detail. Footnotes in Gaza is his most ambitious work to date and transforms a critical conflict of our age into an intimate and immediate experience.
