Black January #Azerbaijan, 1990 One of the world’s greatest armies had surrendered after ten years of fighting the afghan warlords in the mountains. The dismantling of the Eastern Bloc had begun — a process symbolized by the first chunk of concrete torn down from the Berlin Wall. In Azerbaijan, a country under Russian control since the 19th century, political unrest grew into a revolt against the Kremlin. To punish this audacity, Russian tanks entered the capital city of Baku on the night between January 19 and 20, 1990, firing machine guns. The massacre left hundreds of dead and wounded. The city was closed to journalists. But I managed to get there by taking a train from Moscow, keeping myself concealed during the 48-hour trip. I was able to provide a visual testimony of the Russians’ violent suppression of this uprising. I took some of the photographs through the windows of unmarked police cars. Later, the national flower was no longer used to represent the country, but rather that bloody night. Red carnations are now only used at funerals and laid on graves to remember those who died during the struggle for independence. Ephemeral remains of a painful past, the flowers on the ground invite the people to make peace with their own history, to finally reach liberty.

Professional code of ethics #Russia #VolgaDelta I was on a long assignment around the Caspian for National Geographic. I was in Russia, in #Seitovka, in the Volga delta. Russia’s nuclear testing left vast subterranean galleries in its wake which are now used as gas reservoirs despite the warnings of scientists. Gazprom’s only safety precaution: the distribution of gas masks in insufficient numbers, and only for adults. Moreover, the cocktail of radioactive residues and liquid gases have been seeping into the water table for years. The consequences are predictably tragic for the population. Here, two brothers wear their masks to simulate an alert. It is not uncommon, over the course of a reportage, to be solicited or asked to witness a situation, an injustice or a tragedy. Also, during a conflict, some wounded show their injuries. However there is a threshold one must not cross: when a mise en scène becomes, not a denunciation, but a bit of theater. I have always worked by the rule to never solicit or create one, however powerful the possibility of an image may be on a photographic level. It is part of my journalistic code of ethics, from which I never deviate. Text written by Rachel Deghati.

#Turkey, #Istanbul I was on assignment for the National Geographic Magazine in Turkey. Olive trees have always been in Turkey's mediterranean part. After the harvest of the olives every year, there are festivities organized by the farmers or different organizations. Wrestling been one of the most popular sport in Turkey, and became the main attraction after each harvest. Oil wrestlings (Turkish: Yağlı güreş) has become the turkish national sport. The wrestlers, known as pehlivan (Persian: پهلوان‎ meaning "hero" or "champion") wear a type of hand-stitched lederhosen called a kisbet (sometimes kispet), which is traditionally made of water buffalo hide, and most recently has been made of calfskin.

I HAVE MORE DREAMS #USA, #Washington, Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial In Washington DC, the day is breaking. On this holiday which commemorates the Rev. Martin Luther King, I am on my way to another Peace March. The chill in the air brings to mind all the refugee families who are also marching, trying to survive the cold amidst the European forests and “jungles.” After having passed many hours over many days with King’s acolytes, I perceive a great foreboding in each of their faces, reminiscent of that of former prisoners whose memories are haunted by the tortures they have suffered. Each of them fears that their work consists of eternally starting over, that the threat hanging over them will return over and over again, for them and their descendants. This sense of a vague apprehension that I know so well strikes me from my very first meeting with the followers of Martin Luther King, gathered around the Washington Monument. At the end of a march that lasted several hours in a cold, melancholy ambiance bereft of joy... I did see tears, those of a stone statue, a dreamer, whose gaze has been fixed for eternity, and who seemed to share the sorrow of the moment. I thought of the tears of another statue that I had frozen in an instant, at the Père Lachaise Cemetery, when the Iranian community of refugees and exiles in Paris encountered death for the first time when they buried their friend, the writer and thinker, Sa'adi. Here and there, we continue to dream for more humanity, justice and freedom, ideals that need defending now more than ever. #martinlutherking #martinlutherkingday #martinlutherkingjrday #martinlutherkingmemorial #martinlutherkingmarch #tear #portrait #statue #fight #fightforrights #freedom #equality #american #emotion #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى #عكاس @thephotosociety
Fragile Ice The Amur River, #russia Here I am on assignment for National Geographic on the banks of the Amur River, the natural border stretching three kilometers wide which separates two giants: China and Russia. I had just passed part of the winter in this region, moving from one bank to another. The cold froze my mustache, and my film. Working in minus 40 °C is a real challenge! The harbingers of spring are thus very welcome. The thaw has begun and people come out to enjoy it. Vodka and picnics on the as yet non-existent grass are de rigueur. A festive ambiance prevails. Voices, laughter, and the singing of popular songs blend with the sound of colliding ice floes coasting along and clashing. Two young girls sporting mini skirts brave the cold. Since youth is by definition carefree, they leap from floe to floe, catching each other by the hand at the last minute. I watch them from the bank, as close to the edge as possible, in order to capture this fragile balancing act. Text written by Rachel Deghati.

#France, #Paris, Père Lachaise Cemetery #غلامحسين_ساعدى Tears from one statue to another, from one battle to another, the same tears flow over the hopes of our Humanity. Condemned to exile, I left Iran for France on March 25, 1981. For a long time, I thought my time away would be of short duration, just a brief deviation on my path, a pause until the fall of the mullahs. Almost thirty years later, I live my life fully in the present. Each country I find myself in is my own. At the cemetery of Père Lachaise, on a rainy somber day in November 1984, I began to realize that this pleasant “deviation” in the legendary West was taking on a rather definitive cast. At the time, I was a war correspondent, and I enjoyed a certain solitude in France. We were burying an Iranian friend, a thinker and writer. We felt the bitter taste of death in exile, imagining our lifeless bodies interred in a soil which was not our own. It was raining and the congregation were all ensconced under umbrellas. I sought a position above them in order to show the vast number of people present. Suddenly, within my viewfinder, I perceived the quasi-human face of this statue which seemed to be weeping. Its gaze, directed right at me, seemed to reflect my own sadness.

Pakistan-Afghanistan border Military practice I was on assignment for the National Geographic Magazine in Tribal zone in Pakistan-Afghanistan border, where have been under heavy fighting for decades now. The Magazine assignment was on Pakistan and I had to travel extensively to some of the world's most dangerous places. With my friend Don Belt, the writer for the magazine, we spent time with many different military groups. We followed a group of Pakistani special forces during their exercises in Miran Shah, a town in North Waziristan, the capital city of Federally Administered Tribal Areas. A place where no media has been and even now is absolutely closed area and many of insurgents have found safe heaven there. There are places that no outsiders have been allowed for decades. I hope to return back one day as the place is beautiful and it's people too. #military #war #specialforces #tribalzone #armedforce #nationalgeographic #militaryexercise #Waziristan #miranshah #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى عكاس @thephotosociety
#Beijing, The Great Wall of China Dear friends, many of you have been asking about my books. I would like to share for the next weeks the covers of all of them in different languages and their story. This story is about a promise that one must never betray, a promise to my son Delazad, of a journey across the world. When he was a little boy, Delazad, would cry about being separated from me, and would hide in my suitcases. Until one day I told him: “When you will turn 15 years old, we will embark together, just you and I, on a trip across the world.” Years had passed and Delazad started to absorb the world atlas, learning everything about different countries, while becoming an aspiring geographer. In May of 2008, Delazad turned 15, In July, we took we fled in the direction of Beijing, arriving in the middle of the Olympic preparations. From there on, we decided to cross over China, Mongolia, Russia, Caucasia, Turkey, and Central Europe, and return to Paris by train; our silk road. Throughout the two months of travelling, as “modern Sindbads” we sent letters and photos by mail or text messages to Rachel; mother and spouse, and the central connection between us and our adventure. A Childhood Promise tells a story, through these letters and my images, of an initiatory adventure. It is a first life lesson and transition into adulthood for my son. For me, this trip was an opportunity for intimacy, conversation and a mutual understanding between us. At the beginning of the trip, in a letter to Rachel, I wrote “I believe that this encounter with the unknown will inspire Delazad to question his own identity and roots throughout this journey. After all, our encounters with radical opposites act as a mirror of who we really are.” Available in French.

#Egypt, #Cairo Beggars congregate in public squares and other places popular with Cairo’s tourists. Lying on his skateboard, which serves as his legs, Saïd spends the day begging, sometimes stopping to play a game of soccer with his companions in misfortune. He lost his legs after being run over by a train. He had jumped on the train for a free ride because he had no money to pay the ticket. Now a lonely little boy, he’d had to go out on his own after the accident and had joined a team of beggars, a small group of boys ruled by a teenager who guarded their turf and took a share of their earnings. The teenager, whose shadow looms over Saïd, was coming to whip Saïd with his belt, accusing him of not working hard enough. It was my first assignment for National Geography in 1991 publishing this kind of photographs was rare in the magazine, but finally it was published and then my brother Manoocher, photographer for Agence France Press -AFP- and later for Associated Press -AP- find him and helped Saïd and his family.

#Repost @rezaphotography with @repostapp ・・・ Ancient Coptic Christmas #Egypt, #Cairo Over decades, I did few assignments in Egypt for National Geographic Magazine. At Saint Mark’s Cathedral in Cairo, I took part in the celebration of Coptic Orthodox Christians Christmas, and met with representatives of the community. Amongst swirling smoke and incense, the Coptic Orthodox Christian community of Egypt celebrates Christmas with prayers and chants that have remained unchanged for almost 2,000 years. The Copts, a devout Christian community from Egypt, are considered by some scholars the oldest unchanged Egyptian community. Here, The Pope Shenuda III of Alexandria 117th Pope and Patriarch of St Mark's was celebrating the Coptic Christmas which usually is celebrated between 6 and 7 of January. #copt #orthodox #christian #religion #celebration #copticchristmas #copticorthodox #copticpope #christmas #fervor #pray #prayers #cathedral #tradition #devotion #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #عكاس

PC - @rezaphotography regram @rezaphotography Inspiration from childhood #China, #Xinjiang (#EasternTurkestan) I was on assignment for National Geographic on Xinjiang. In childhood, the experience of reading has an incomparable flavor. For a young reader, words and stories about faraway places are not just a simple invitation to travel, but a call to a horizon freighted with mysteries. Reading about such enthralling locations often then inspires a child to make a secret pact: to go visit these places someday, so that these words, these places are no longer merely black ink on a white page, but become a lived and felt reality. Some texts seem to evoke a bygone era, conjuring up a world that now belongs to history. I am thinking, for instance, of the writings of ancient travelers or of the poems of Sa’adi. Likewise, as I discovered East Turkestan,while on assignment for the National Geographic Magazine, I had the impression of being immersed in the books from my childhood and of traveling through time. Karakol Lake is on the road that separates the city of Kashgar from the tall peaks of the Pamir mountain range. Karakoll means “black lake” in Uygur. A caravan of travelers had stopped for a moment near the icy lake. Glaciers towered nearby. The Pamirs include a hundred glaciers. Muztagata, parallel to the edge of the Pamirs and known as the “father of ice mountains,” reaches 24,757 feet. Text written by Rachel Deghati.

Just before #China #easternturkistan I was on assignment for National Geographic on Xinjiang. In their conquest of west for centuries, Chinese wanted to invade the part of Central-Asia known as "eastern Turkistan". In the 18th century, Manchu emperors were sending the tribes that were famous for their ferocity in fighting on horse back and archery. Crushed all resistance from local native Turkish Uygurs opening road for Chinese army to invade the "Eastern Turkistan", and even change its name to "Xinjang", "New borders".

A clan gathers to celebrate the circumcision of the son of its chieftain. The occasion is celebrated with a professional Aynur dancer (Aynur means ‘reflections of the moon’) who sways to the beat of the dutar, a traditional lute used in Iran and Central Asia. Eastern Turkistan is a crossroads of Turkic and Persian cultures, which have been disseminated over the centuries by these nomadic tribes. Text written by Rachel Deghati.

#Pakistan I was on assignment for National Geographic on Afghanistan. The shipwrecked boats in the harbor of Karachi are the object of everyone’s desire, eyed for their worth as sources of metal. Once dismantled, the carcasses of the boats, their hulls gutted, are the subject of heated bargaining. After they are sold, some of the iron plates from the boats will make the long trip from Karachi to the remote and dangerous tribal zones near the border that separates Pakistan from Afghanistan. Twelve Pashtun tribes have lived in this area, in self-sufficient isolation. Nevertheless, their secluded homeland is a strategic passageway, which has made it a focal point in the global geopolitical game. The members of one of these tribes are renowned as gunsmiths. In days gone by, the Darra village craftsmen fashioned swords, but now they create replicas of every type of gun, reproducing even the most sophisticated of firearms with so much precision that experts are unable to tell they are copies. Manufactured in small, makeshift workshops, the guns are made using the iron plates taken from the boats. Forged and sharpened, the metal is turned into weapons. The various military conflicts that have troubled this region since 1979, including the Russian invasion of Afghanistan, have caused the demand for arms to soar. To fulfill the orders, all hands are recruited, even the little hands of children. Text written by Rachel Deghati.
