A Whole World Blind depicts the realities of war in Northern Syria's rebel-held territories from the brutal to the mundane.

Award-winning photographer Nish Nalbandian has spent three years covering the war in Northern Syria and the refugees from that war in Turkey. His debut monograph, A Whole World Blind, entwines documentary photography and portraiture with oral testimony, essays, stories, and memoir to create a vivid picture of the reality of this war. The book depicts fighters on the frontline as well as everyday people eking out a living amidst the ruins. Fascinated by the dynamic of life that continued through conflict, Nalbandian's photographs humanize what often read as impersonal headlines about a dangerous war.

Nish Nalbandian has photographed in more than thirty-five countries worldwide in a variety of environments and continues to cover Syrian Refugee issues. Nalbandian's awards include First Prize for Conflict photography in the 2014 IPA, the Gold Medal for War Photography in the 2014 PX3, and many more.
