IRAN-IRAQ war

photos by Alfred Yaghobzadeh

April 1st - 15th July 2019

Alfred Yaghobzadeh was at university in Tehran when the Islamic Revolution began, which was followed by the Iraqi invasion over the eastern border. With his camera he hitch-hiked to the frontline to witness and record the conditions of the combatants, many younger than him. During the early years of the war Alfred travelled to many of the frontlines, documenting the horror and hardships, and also experiencing the religious and nationalist euphoria of those who volunteered to fight and die during the Iran-Iraq war.

The photographs, brilliantly lighted on dark walls, range from the violent to the absurd. They include pictures of dozens of bodies, victims of the shelling of a Croatian city; artillery fire painting bright orange lines in the night sky; and a Serbian policeman offering water to an elderly Kosovar Albanian as his colleagues burn the old man's village down. 

Stark images by some of the world's best war photographers went on permanent display this week in Dubrovnik, stripping away Hollywood's gloss on war and the euphemisms of leaders who try to sanitise it. The War Photo exhibition is a vision of human conflict in the modern age that early visitors have called powerful, painful, beautiful, brutal, courageous and indispensable. 

*****Excellent exhibition. Well laid out with a clear and informative accompanying guide to put the exhibitions in context and give you some story behind the photos. It's a sobering moment but well worth investing an hour and the 40kuna entrance.
