In the 21st century, globalisation has opened up the world for better and for worse. While we all welcome the virtues and advantages of an open society, Poppy tells a different story: of a world facing destabilisation as a result of multiple threats. Drugs, armed conflict, international crime, chronic poverty, and the spread of hiv/aids; Poppy shows how closely they are all intertwined.

‘Poppy is an epic tale ... With its verysmart presentation and the quality
of the photography and the writing,this book is setting a new benchmark ...
Highly recommended.’
Conscientious blog / Jörg Colberg
 
‘Poppy is a dense, intense object of a book that weighs in at almost 500 pages. Images and text ricochet back and forth in time and space. Knoth’s photographs, overlaid with short, brutal captions, saturate
the uncoated stock with dream-like blurs of colour, sacrificing detail and clarityfor texture and depth.’
TimemachineMagazine / Jess Scully
 
Der Bilder- und Informationsstrom hat Tempo und entfaltet eine feine Dynamik. ... Poppy ist rau, direkt und knallhart.’
Der Spiegel / Gunda Schwantje
 
‘Poppy est une épopée … Poppy, Trailsof Afghan Heroin fait la démonstration, assez rare actuellement, que le livre de photographie peut être un parfait support pour une enquête journalistique au long cours, sans aucune posture auteuriste.’
Le Monde / Rémi Coignet
