This piece is a compilation of my work documenting Kurdish daily life between Turkey and Iraq during the last six years. I put it together to show at the 2010 Foundry photojournalism workshop in Istanbul, Turkey. The slideshow is divided into two parts (hence the 6:00 minute time stamp) and shows the stark contrast between the life of Kurds living freely in the region with the life of those confined to refugee camps in Iraq.

This is actually a shortened version of a piece I made after the 2007 wildfires that consumed 500,000 acres and 1,500 homes, but in light of the recent station fire I thought it would be nice to republish it to show that the people that lost their homes in the last ring of deadly fires have not been forgotten.
