teun voeten books


Long before the term ‘multi media’ was coined, Voeten already combined writing and photography. Sometimes one photo says more than a thousand words. But social, political and historical contexts need to be explained by words.

Besides numerous articles, Voeten wrote two books, one on the underground homeless in New York and one on the war in Sierra Leone. His latest publication is a photo book on the drug violence in Mexico.

A Ticket To

By Teun Voeten

Since 1991, Voeten has photographed conflict zones all over the world. Images from Bosnia, Sudan, Rwanda, Sierra Leone and Afghanistan appear in A Ticket To, his first photo book. Media professor Henri Beunders wrote the intro, Voeten wrote Neo-Vulturisme in Contemporary Documentary Photography. Or: Do You Remember Goma?, a sarcastic essay that has become a classic on journalistic schools about his work in the “front lines.”
