When All the Lands Were Sea

A Photographic Journey Into the Lives of the Marsh Arabs of Iraq

Book - 2015
Rate this:
This remarkable collection of photographs, captured by internationally acclaimed photojournalist Tor Eigeland in 1967-before Saddam Hussein dammed and drained vast areas of the marshlands brutally forcing the marshes' inhabitants to abandon their way of life-offers unprecedented insight into the daily life of the Marsh Arabs of Iraq. These photographs illustrate the beauty of this unique environment-the marshlands between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers-and show a culture that existed practically unchanged for over 2,000 years.
