"On Contested Terrain, published on the occasion of the first comprehensive exhibition of An-My Lê's work, includes selections from her major series photographing former battlefields, spaces reserved for training or the reenactment of war, and the noncombatant role of active service members, as well as many new, never-before-seen images. Essays by curators Dan Leers and Lisa Sutcliffe, as well as an interview between Lê and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Viet Thanh Nguyen, address how Lê's work complicates the landscapes of conflict that have long informed American identity"--
