* "Palu is a rare combination of artist and war photographer, able to stand present for horrific human events and then synthesize those moments into something artful, poetic, and powerful." - Lenscratch * "I usually don't like to view unbound books," blogged curator and educator Elizabeth Avedon in March. "They generally seem cooked up by the book designer trying to make a design statement, regardless of its effect on the photography. However, in the case of Front Towards Enemy, the mastery of documentary photographer and filmmaker Louie Palu's powerful images bring a cohesive message to this 'deconsrtucted' book - and I am appreciating each and every individual portion." * "It's a deconstructed photo book that invites the reader to become an editor." - ProPhoto Daily * "Louie Palu in his new multi-media publication (can we really call this a photobook?) Front Towards Enemy provides a version of a photo-documentary that resulted from a self-assignment investigation of the war conflict in Afghanistan. This is a very complex region; socially, economically, politically and environmentally that Palu has tried to emulate with an equally complex and layered print concept." - The PhotoBook Journal
