Happy to see my report «the burning desert» on the ISIS lid oilfields south of Mosul featured in the 2017 issue of the Swiss Press Photo yearbook.
I wrote an article for the Kiev based photography and reportage magazine «bird in flight». The article goes along with photos I took back in Dezember 2015 and January 2016 in northern Iraq, and can be read here in English or translated to Russian here. All pictures were taken in Sinjar or the surrounding front lines.
I wrote an article for the Swiss newspaper Tagesanzeiger on the fight between the Kurdish forces and the self proclaimed Islamic State (ISIS). The article contains my text as well as photographs I made in July and August 2015. the article is in German and can be read here.
There are also 18 photos I took in late December 2015 inside the Islamic State tunnel system found under the liberated northern Iraqi city of Sinjar. They are featured in this article on the german weekly magazines online issue of DER SPIEGEL.
In August 2015 I visited the frontline against the Islamic State in the Kurdish regions of northern Iraq. A glimpse of the work I did there can be seen here. Many thanks to the local producer Samad Rashid for making my work as safe and easy as possible under the given circumstances.
