"Buzzing at the Sill is a body of work by Peter van Agtmael undertaken on his return home to America after years as a war correspondent in Iraq and Afghanistan, trying to understand his experience and his country. During the September 11 attacks and the invasion of Iraq, he was a history student at Yale; he spent the subsequent years documenting the wars that followed and the parallel lives of Americans back home. The work is a mixture of reflections on war, memory, militarism, identity, ethnicity, social class, surrealism and landscape. ‘Buzzing at the Sill’ is the continuation of Disco Night Sept. 11, van Agtmael’s last book about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Upon the publication of Buzzing at the Sill Peter van Agtmael was interviewed by his friend, contemporary and fellow Magnum photographer Thomas Dworzak about documenting America and the conditions that led to the inevitability of Trump’s rise to power."
