For four decades Herlinde Koelbl has unflinchingly turned her camera to everything from the vagaries of aging flesh and the physical toll of drug withdrawal to the history of hair in artistic masterpieces. In this arresting and important book she looks at soldiers preparing for war. Visiting twenty-four countries around the world, Koelbl documented soldiers training in vast empty deserts, surrealistic underground bunkers, abandoned cottages in the German countryside, and mock cities constructed by Hollywood set designers. Accompanied by commentary by the soldiers themselves, these images illustrate the incredibly diverse and increasingly perplexing conditions confronted by military populations throughout the world. Together they provide a disturbing, insightful, and unforgettable collective portrait of modern warfare.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"German photographer Herlinde Koelbl traveled to 30 countries and visited military camps to photograph the shooting targets used around the world. The sometimes eerie, sometime comical results are compiled in Targets." --WIRED "Koelbl traveled to almost 30 countries to photograph how different countries design shooting targets." Slate "Koelbl set out to explore the idea of the enemy and the many forms through which fear and hatred manifest themselves in various locations and cultures. To do so, she captured the many appearances of targets used for military training in over 20 countries. . . Targets presents a disturbing look at the many faces of 'evil', or at least the faces of those deemed worthy of killing." Huffington Post
