Description:

Copies of Under Every Yard of Sky will be available in the bookstore for purchase. Full food and bar menu will be available during the event. 

Under Every Yard of Sky is an unprecedented photography book of intimate images and personal essays documenting Iraqi Kurdistan behind the headlines. From 2008 to 2017, Meyer followed the Kurds as they rose, phoenix-like, from their bloody past to hover for a moment in a state of peace, before being plunged back into war. Over those ten years, Meyer’s life became intertwined with that rise and fall. His own story of friendship and loss is reflected in his photographs and writing which take the reader deep inside Kurdistan.

Sebastian Meyer is an award-winning photographer and filmmaker, and recipient of multiple grants from The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting. His editorial photographs have been published in TIME Magazine, Fortune Magazine, The Sunday Times Magazine, The FT Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, and The New York Times, among many others. Meyer has also made films for National Geographic, PBS Newshour, Channel 4 News, CNN, and HBO.
