Four Wives, One Man is a portrait of four wives, a polygamist husband, their incredibly free-speaking mother-in-law, and their many, many children - all living under the same roof in a rural Iranian village. Four Wives, One Man follows the story of Heda, an Iranian farmer and his four wives, Farang, Goli, Shapar, Ziba and their 20 children. Their polygamist lifestyle, although sanctioned by the Koran, is not common in Iran, and of these incidents, most take place in rural villages and towns.

One of Australia's greatest photojournalists goes on a riveting first-hand journey through an Afghanistan never seen on the news. For almost 50 years, activist artist George Gittoes has stood on the frontlines of the world's most brutal conflicts and borne witness to the best and worst of humanity. Now living in Afghanistan's remote, Taliban-ruled Jalalabad province, Gittoes turns his attention to the lives of the children and outcasts of this war-torn land. He focuses on three gangs of children: the Ghostbusters, persecuted Kochi boys who hawk exorcisms of bad luck and demons; the Snow Monkeys, who sell ice-cream to support their families; and the Gangsters, a razor gang led by a nine-year-old antihero called Steel. With a deeply humane vision that won him the Sydney Peace Prize, Gittoes shows the unseen nature of Afghanistan's politics, culture and society, up close and startlingly personal.
