Ben Barber has been a journalist and photographer for 30 years for the London Observer, LA Times, USA Today, United Press International, the Washington Times, the Christian Science Monitor, and many other news outlets. He also served as senior writer for USAID.
In an article published in today’s Huffington Post, Mr. Barber aptly compares the current water crisis in Flint, Michigan to instances of pollution worldwide as covered in “The Brown Agenda,” Damon’s book with noted environmentalist and entrepreneur, Richard Fuller.
The Brown Agenda was published in August 2015 by Santa Monica Press.
Covers for two of Damon’s books were released in January. The first was the cover for “The Brown Agenda,” Damon’s collaboration with Richard Fuller, Founder and President of Blacksmith Institute/Pure Earth, the NGO that’s doing such incredible work fighting jaw-dropping instances of pollution all over the world. The book features a foreword by Bryan Walsh, senior environment editor for TIME Magazine, and the cover looks like this:
The second cover is for the German edition of “The Actor’s Art & Craft,” Damon’s first collaboration with Bill Esper. The book features the original foreword by David Mamet, plus a specific foreword for German readers. That cover looks like this:
Evidently, vast differences exist between the German and American-Meisner-based concepts of acting. For instance, as the foreword to the German edition points out, Germans often use a word that translates as “pretend-playing” where, in English, we use the word acting.
