Right after the fall of Saddam Hussein, in 2005, the Kurdish people in the northern region Iraq enjoyed stable lives for a short period of time. Iraqi Kurdistan takes us into daily life there, and celebrates the beauty of peace.

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.
