Review:

"His book fulfils one of the classic roles of great photojournalism, in that it helps both to illuminate an issue and to understand its complexities."―British Journal of Photography

Synopsis:

"Allah O Akbar" begins the call to prayer that resonates from minarets in towns and villages from Sinkiang to Morocco, from Paris to Timbuktu. Wherever in the world you are, the message is the same: "God is Great". It is also, however, the cry of fundamentalists throughout the lands of the faithful. Abbas has spent seven years travelling throughout the Islamic world taking the photographs for this extraordinary book. He is driven by a desire to understand and expose the internal strains pulling within Muslim societies. Many Islamic societies seem shrouded in religious and cultural mystery, but through his words and images, Abbas provides a penetrating insight into the secrets of this people and their world.
