Dzhangal Summary

Dzhangal by Gideon Mendel

In this new book, acclaimed photographer, Gideon Mendel, - performed a type of contemporary ethno-archaeology, evoking the camp resident's humanity through what was discarded. Visible ingrained dirt and ashes allow the viewer to sense the refugees' struggle to live ordinary lives under the most extraordinary circumstances. Mendel's alternative portraits of the Jungle residents are representative of the plight of displaced people across the globe. The book's title 'Dzhangal', is drawn from a Pashto word meaning 'This is the forest', the origin of the contentious term 'The Jungle'. The book will include over 40 photographs with texts by refugees, writer and broadcaster Paul Mason and art historian Dominique Malaquais.
