Artist's Description

A couple of Iraqi Kurds sit outside a cafe on one of the streets in Dahuk, a northern Iraqi city. This area (what the locals refer to as Kurdistan – as an autonomous region) was where the initial uprising to overthrow Sadaam in the first Gulf War took place but was squelched by Sadaam’s Royal Guard. This go around the Kurds were much more reluctant to first assist American forces, but have become valuable allies.

Dahuk, Iraq

Circa 2006
