Just Another War by Exene Cervenka
Perceval Press is pleased to offer a limited quantity of JUST ANOTHER WAR, the haunting 1991 collaboration between Exene Cervenka and Pulitzer Prize-nominated photojournalist Kenneth Jarecke, with a forward by NBC news commentator John Hockenberry. Jarecke covered the Gulf War for Time magazine, and asked Exene to write commentary to his photos, many of which were refused publication by wire services in the U.S. during the assault led by the George Herbert Walker Bush administration, presumably due to their graphic and disturbing subject matter. Fifteen years down the line, these images and words serve as cautionary reminders, sadly confirming how little has been learned between 1991 and 2006. Aside from the enduring documentary impact of JUST ANOTHER WAR, Exene’s handwritten observations and Jarecke’s photographs stand on their own as the work of unique artists.
