An exhibition that is both visually stunning and socially important, it offers an unfamiliar perspective of Iraq through the eyes of a generation of young local photographers as well as the photographic archive of Twana Abdullah, spanning the period from 1974 to 1992. It's been brought to life thanks to the vision of Stefano Carini and Dario Bosio, two Italian photographers who lived and worked in Iraq. The exhibition offers a unique and previously unseen view of Iraq and captures the fragmented picture of contemporary life across the country: from the vastness of the mountainous northern borderlands, to a multiplicity of scenes across the country, with the fading flashbacks of its recent history and the effects of the ongoing conflict. With their unprecedented access to, and knowledge of, the local environment, the photographers bring us closer to the land and its people, their stories, and a life that goes on in spite of war.
Open 10:00-18:00. Closed Mon. Dec 4 2018 - Mar 3 2019
