AFTER THE END is an art publication by designer and author Mohammad Sharaf. It consists of two books that collect more than 1,200 photographs. Each pair of books comes in a numbered box. This first edition is limited to 250 numbered copies.

Sharaf has been photographing abandoned places in Kuwait since 2002 using various types of cameras (film, digital, and mobile phones). The sheer volume of photographs contained in the books becomes an interesting relic of everyday life, creating an imaginary post-apocalyptic documentation of places once occupied by people, animals, and plants.

Each book in AFTER THE END is made up of 684 pages and divided into chapters based on the different locations in which the photographs were taken. Within these chapters are occasional textual reflections that were written in response to the photographs by 18 contributors who come from diverse backgrounds.

Both books look identical from the outside while each contains different content. They are designed to resemble the physical characteristics of a brick, each one measuring 11.5 by 18.5 cm in size, and 5.5 cm in thickness. The exposed spine and light paper weight, however, make the books easy to hold and flip through.

Titled in both English and Arabic, the books may be browsed from left to right, right to left, or from anywhere in between. This deliberate design makes the books seem almost un-precious, much like the abandoned lives scattered throughout the photographs.
