#Pyrénées #France Taking advantage of the tourist season of the summer, a farmer comes to sell his cheeses in the vicinity of Luz Saint Sauveur. Protected by the National Park of the Pyrénées, the region of #Lavedan is famous for its breathtaking landscapes. For those inhabitants who are able to resist the urban exodus towards the plains, tourism remains a crucial source of income. Photograph taken during a reportage in France on the regions of the Languedoc Roussillon and Midi Pyrénées, while assembling material for a book for National Geographic.

#Repost @natgeoturkiye with @repostapp ・・・ National Geographic fotoğrafçılarından @rezaphotography çektiği bu fotoğrafın hikayesini paylaşıyor: Yıllar önce yaşamış mistik şair Hacı Bektaş Veli, hala hacılara Kapodakya’nın ay manzaralarına çok da uzak olmayan memleketinde toplanmaları için ilham verir. Sufi’nin mezarının yakınında bir dilek ağacı vardır. On binlerce hacı, her yıl Ağustos ayında onu anmak için burada toplanır. Yüzyıllardır devam eden gelenekte, birkaç gün boyunca hiç bitmeyen bir coşkuyla; dua edilir, ağlanır ve dans edilir. Dilek ağacının yanında duaların gerçekleşmesi için adaklar adanır. Kutsal kabul edilen dut ağacı, kumaş parçaları ile dallarına bağlanmış olan dilekleri ve sırları rüzgara sunar. Fotoğrafın hikayesi Rachel Deghati tarafından yazıldı. Yayınlanan yerler: "Savaş + Barış" (National Geographic Yayınları, 2007), "Reza, Entre Guerre et Paix" (National Geographic Yayınları, 2008) ve "Sur les routes de la soie" (Hoëbeke Yayınları, 2007). #ağaç #mavi #grace #nature #sky #dostluk #sükunet #şifre #calm #güzel #majesty #poetry #sufi #mulberrytree #istek #torka #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #Rezaphotojournalist #webistan #adak #natgeo Turkey

Should colonialism be considered a "Crime against Humanity"? #Algeria, #Oran area On the set of Zabana!, a movie by Algerian director Said Ould-Khelifa, produced by Yacine Laloui. A French policeman threatens a sympathiser with the Algerian rebellion, a member of the National Liberation Front and war veteran on the French side during the Second World War. Ahmed Zabana, best known as Zabana, was an Algerian freedom fighter who participated in the assassination of a forest ranger named Francois Braun during the night of October 31st to November 1st, 1954. Following this event and the outbreak of the Algerian war of liberation in the region of Oran on November 1st, 1954, he was sentenced to death and guillotined. The execution took place on June 19th, 1956, in the Barberousse prison of Algiers. He is now regarded as a national hero; his hometown and a few places in Oran are named after him. #colonialism #algerian #film #movie #Zabana #freedom #algerianwar #execution #crime #prison #nationalhero #set #filmmaker #policeman #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى #عكاس @thephotosociety Oran, Algeria

International Mother Language Day ​#China, #Xinjiang (#EasternTurkestan). North of the #Taklamakan #Desert I was on assignment for National Geographic on Xinjiang. The famous Taklamakan Desert stretched away in front of me. I was going to take on a 370-mile-long road crossing through the vast expanse with no landmark, deprived of oasis, rocks and small shrubs, a mere succession of sand dunes. By the dried-out bed of the Tarim River, a Uyghur village was the last possible stop before the desert. As I often did while traveling, I asked where the school was. Ten students of all ages were listening to the teacher. The broken benches, the dirty walls, the rare and sorry-loo- king school books showed that no subsidies had been granted for a long time by the Chinese authorities. First, I was agreeably surprised to notice that the books were written in Uyghur. Then I quickly understood that I had been deceived. Elementary school students may have the right to study texts written in their native language, but only until junior high school where only Mandarin is taught. However, the Chinese assimilation policy for minorities is much more efficient and deceitful. Moreover, elementary school students do have the right to read and write in their native language, but their books are always made under the control of the Chinese authorities, which impose their own version of History.

#France, Village of Saint Martin, #Comminges At the heart of the #Pyrénées, I had a fortuitous encounter with a village elder who was out in front of his house for a bit of air. I was intrigued by all the elements in his appearance that indicated a long life of labor: the blue pants of a factory worker or peasant, his strong knotted hands, marked by work and time. And his dignity. This photograph was taken during a reportage in France on the regions of the Languedoc Roussillon and Midi Pyrénées, while assembling material for a book for National Geographic.

DEEP INSPIRATION #Pakistan I took the portrait of this dervish (Malang) in Sehwan sharif, in Pakistan, during the annual celebration of Urs of Lal shahbaz Qalandar, a 13th century Sufi Master worshiped alike by Hindus and Muslims. Born as Seyed Shah Hussain (Usman) Marandi, he later on titled as Lal (red) Shahbaz ( Falcon) Qalandar (as he belonged to Qalandria order of sufism).

#Pakistan Trance The terrible news of this explosion perpetrated by ISIS in the heart of sufism in Pakistan reminds me the days and nights I spent while on assignment for National Geographic Magazine. Religious trance during a pilgrimage to commemorate Sufi Master Lal Shahbaz Qalandar. In the short scale of a human life, the erring ways of man, the jolts of historical events, and the violence perpetrated in the name of power have a profound effect and seem inordinately important. Since my first encounter with social injustice in Iran, when I was a teenager, I have not stopped fulfilling my role as a witness, documenting through images the crises I have observed around the world. Often, I took these photographs while being right at the center of a country’s military conflicts, cultural and political tensions, or soul-wrenching tragedy. By sharing these images, I have tried to awaken empathy and personal involvement, and also commitment, so that the viewer who sees these images will be stirred to help through humanitarian actions. I have suffered physically during some of the stories I have covered, and I have suffered emotionally because of my exile from my homeland of Iran. This suffering, though, was in the service of the mission that fate has entrusted to me and that I carry out with joy. I am not drawing any sad and hopeless conclusions about humankind, which, despite the passage of several millennia, is still only taking its first, faltering steps. Over the past decades, in the intimate inner journey I have made while reporting on troubled areas around the world, I have always granted a significant place to poetry, which gives me a different reading on life. Poetry, especially the works of Rumi, helps me remain calm despite the sorrow I have seen. Without a doubt, it was Rumi who managed to anchor within me that inner peace. Thanks to his verses, the realization now dwells in me that, though we are tiny particles in the universe, we must still consciously “be” - aware, sharing, and engaged. #religious #pilgrimage #sufi #man #danse #trance #poetry #rumi #peace #red #dresses #dervish #whirlingdervish #spirituality #photooftheday @thephotosociety Pakistan

RIP #Pakistan The devastating explosion of today in Sehwan Sharif reminds me an assignment for National Geographic Magazine. While on assignment, you have often to share the daily routine of the people you are working on, in every conditions that they live. In Sehwan Sharif, in Pakistan, a group of dervishes (malangs) resting by Sehwan Fort. They gather together to celebrate the annual Urs of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar, a 13th century Sufi Master venerated alike by Hindus and Muslims. Born as Seyed Shah Hussain (Usman) Marandi, he later on titled as Lal (red) Shahbaz ( Falcon) Qalandar (as he belonged to Qalandria order of sufism).

LOVE OF FREEDOM Kurdistan Regional Government - Iraq What if, in the beginning, there was love? That is the question this couple asks themselves amidst the metal of bombs and recycled artillery. This work at the Azadi Park in Duhok City is by Kurdish artist Adnan Shino. The ensemble is called "Freedom Panorama." Since 2013, I have conducted a large-scale photography project about the people of The KRG (Kurdistan Regional Government - Iraq) — their ability to resist, their hopes and sorrows, and the way they organize the culture and spirituality of their society. In the heart of each Kurd I encountered over the course of my many journeys to Kurdistan beat a desire for freedom. Here, love and freedom are genuine life commitments, preserved and passed down over millennia. Their inspiring story attests to the incredible capacity for resilience, renewed with each new drama, each betrayal, that I found among the Kurds, who have persevered against all odds. I could tell you one story after the other, like a narrative rosary that invokes an unshakable faith in life. Today, I thought of this statue made of iron and love that unites this couple in love as they gaze ahead with a crazy yet indestructible hope.

IN THE NAME OF LOVE #Pakistan In Sehwan Sharif, in Pakistan, I spent several days covering the annual ceremony of Urs of Lal Shabaz Qalandar at the entrance of his shrine. Born as Seyed Shah Hussain (Usman) Marandi, he later on titled as Lal (red) Shahbaz ( Falcon) Qalandar (as he belonged to Qalandria order of sufism). He was a 13th century Sufi Master and he has been worshiped alike by Hindus and Muslims. .While some devotees belonging to different sect of sufism celebrate his death as his reunion with god by performing Dhmal, an ecstatic dance, others beloging to mainstream Shi'a, seek to emulate his suffering by self mutilation and slapping their chests to show their grieving. This picture is a part of my National Geographic Magazine assignment on Pakistan.

A souvenir from the Arab Spring #Cairo Revolution On February 2011, on an assignment for National Geographic Magazine, I went to Cairo to cover the "Arab Spring" and the impact of the revolution on the pyramids and on the remains of the past sheltered in museums. On Tahrir Square, I encountered many opposition protesters, like this young man who was determined to make his voice heard. I took part in a revolution that was highly meditated, thanks to the numerous visual testimonies shared by the citizens on social medias. Hundreds had started to go down the streets of Cairo in January, to show their discontent and protest against a government that did not listen to them anymore. The whole political system was plagued by corruption, unemployment and a lack of liberties from which the people suffered. The revolution was underway and led to the fall of the president, Hosni Mubarak. Soon after, Tunisia, Jodan, Yemen, Libya, Morocco, and Bahreïn followed the Egyptian example: the Arab Spring was underway. Today, the situation in Egypt is still unstable: Adbel Fattah al-Sissi rules the country with an iron fist. #egyptian #egypt #revolution #arabspring #egyptianrevolution #tahrirsquare #opposition #protestor #testimony #flag #egyptianflag #man #shadow #victory #proud #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى#عكاس @thephotosociety Cairo, Egypt

Animal Park of #Argelès-Gazost, #France After months spent wandering alone through the south of France, over the course of the four seasons as I worked on a book for National Geographic, we decided that we would share this adventure as a family during a few weeks of the summer. Our children were small (2 and 7 years of age) and we had always tried to make them understand the realities of the work of a photographer... then we had a chance to really make them a part of it! Our little girl Djanan engaged in a dialogue with a marmot who had made a break from the park and was successfully returned there by the park rangers.

#France #Uzès As I undertook a photographic odyssey through the south of France for a book for National Geographic, I discovered the tiny town of Uzès near the famous Pont du Gard. One evening, I captured this instant of pure poetry, at the fountain in the center of the Place aux Herbes, in the heart of the old city. Surrounded by a gallery of arcades, this square is the site of many markets and fairs that mark the passage of the year in this town in the region of Gard. The annual Truffle Fair is the most frequented.

A Sea of Birds Etang de l'Or, #France Working for National Geographic is a demanding school, on a par with the means that are provided to photographers to cover their subjects. Over several months, through each of the seasons, I did a reportage in France on the regions of the Languedoc Roussillon and Midi Pyrénées, assembling material for a book for National Geographic. I wanted to see the Mediterranean coast from the air, this tenuous border between nature and the earth, between the wild and the works of humankind. While I was in a helicopter rented by National Geographic I captured this flight of pink flamingos who had found refuge in the peaceful Camargue, a bit of arid wilderness between Arles and Saintes Maries de la Mer.

DEVOTION #Pakistan I had the chance to got to Shewan Sharif, while I was doing what we used to call "a country story" for National Geographic Magazine. I met this whirling dervish , among others, during annual celebration of Urs at the shrine of Lal shahbaz Qalandar a 13th century Sufi Master worshiped alike by Hindus and Muslims. Born as Seyed Shah Hussain (Usman) Marandi, he later on titled as Lal (red) Shahbaz ( Falcon) Qalandar (as he belonged to Qalandria order of sufism)..Different sect of religion brings different ways of celebrating the Urs of Lal shahbaz Qalandar. Within this group of devotees, they dance as they celebrate his reunion with god. They whirl as a form of mystical absorption in the divine. Text written by Rachel Deghati.

Wedding and power #Pakistan, #Karachi At the Clifton Palace garden in Karachi, Pakistan, Benazir Bhutto and Asif Zardari had an almost traditional Pakistani wedding. Portrait of a pretty young girl participating to the wedding. Benazir broke with tradition by trying to keep their wedding simple. She eliminated the dowry, had only two shalwar kameez instead of the traditional nearly 51 dresses and wore only one layer of jewelry. Benazir wore a white silk tunic with gold-embroidery. Asif wore a turban and a cream-colored tunic. Asif and Benazir and their families had several days of celebration. The couple said "yes" three times, and at their wedding ceremony Benazir and Asif looked into a mirror together so they could see themselves as a married couple for the first time. Sugar was ground over their heads so their lives would be sweet. In the streets after their wedding there were 100,000 political supporters dancing, singing, firing guns in the air, and enjoying fireworks. Then, the power, the wedding with Asif, took Benazir on a different road that she didn't want at the begining. Text written by Rachel Deghati.
