Iraqi Kurdistan

Iraqi Kurdistan

In 2005, photojournalist Ed Kashi spent seven weeks in Iraqi Kurdistan, taking thousands of photographs of daily life. The violence had stopped in the region; a federally-recognized parliamentary democracy had just taken hold, and the Kurdish people were able to set roots down again in secure, stable lives. This is a collage-like portrait of a peaceful region that is full of promise, even as it sits so near an ongoing war.
