We are glad to welcome to the DARST family Kurdish Iraqi photographer Hawre Khalid!
After graduating in Journalism at Sulaymaniyah University in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq in 2007, and after living for several years in The Netherlands, Khalid moved back to his country where he began his career as a photojournalist.
He has been covering every aspect of the on going conflict in Iraq: from the front lines to the living conditions of the internally displaced people, passing through daily life in the disputed city of Kirkuk, his hometown.
He is one of the photographers who worked on the project Map of Displacement, for which he shot two stories.
His work has been exhibited both in Iraq and in Europe and it's included in the Over My Eyes exhibition, the first ever all Iraqi documentary photography exhibition in Europe.
Khalid regularly works with some of the most respected media outlets in the world, including TIME, De Volkskrant, Al Jazeera, Der Spiegel, Le Monde, The Sunday Times, Newsweek Japan among others.
He lives and works in Iraq.
A selection of his work can be found at this link!
