Presentation by Kehrer : 

"Buzzing at the Sill is Peter van Agtmael's work about coming home from years of covering war in Iraq and Afghanistan and trying to understand his experiences and his country. A student of history at Yale during the September 11 attacks and the invasion of Iraq, his sheltered life was uprooted by the realization that he needed to cover the wars. The work is a stew of reflections on war, memory, militarism, identity, race, class, family, surrealism and the landscape. It is both about the limitations of photography and an homage to its power.

Buzzing at the Sill is a sequel to Disco Night Sept. 11, van Agtmael's previous book on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan which received many nominations and awards."

The book includes inside the back cover a 32-page booklet of texts by the photographer (English only).
