Short Stories from Troubled Societies: The Saddam City.

Ziyah Gafić is a photographer I’ve been loving and following for couple of years now. He’s been all over the Middle East and has dealt with conflict areas through his work for more than a decade.

Due to all the news pouring in from Iraq lately, I’ve decided to post a part of Ziyah’s Short Stories from Troubled Societies , a part concerning Iraq. It’s a photo essay called Saddam City.

As Gafić writes it:

“These photo-essays unpretentiously seek to illuminate the pattern of questionable international involvement and focus on the people left behind, struggling to restore some kind of daily order in their damaged environments.”
