The truth about the case of Manbaa Mokfhi
SC 21 x 29 cm., o.pp.

In November 2006 Al-Zur (the Qatar-based news agency) photojournalists, Mohammed ben Kalish Ezab and Omar ben Salaad, pulled off one of the most stunning scoops in the annals of investigative journalism. Ben Kalish and Ben Salaad followed the trail of Dr. Fasqiyta-Ul Junat, a leader of Al Qaeda's military wing. This is how Joan Fontcuberta's latest fiction project starts. A complex and ironic vision of how Western World envisages the arabic world. Photography and deception meet in this publication, which will not leave you indifferent.
