The Instant Before #Afghanistan, Badakhshan Province, the village of Mughol-Hafez A few moments before the melee of men and animals known as the game of Buzkashi. The game is played on horseback with a goat or lamb carcass. The day before the game, the goat’s throat is slit and its blood removed. The carcass is soaked in water overnight to make it heavier. Played since the times of Genghis Khan, now banned by the Taliban, this warrior’s game is played by two teams who fight for possession of the carcass, and is popular among the peoples of Central Asia: Kirghiz, Pashtuns, Kazakhs, Uzbeks, Hazaras, Tajiks and Turkmen. The game was the subject of Joseph Kessel’s book Les Cavaliers. Published in 1967, it is considered Kessel’s masterpiece. Published in Reporters Without Borders ( 2008), "Plus loin sur la terre" (Hors Collection Publishing, 2002) , and "Afghanistan, les âmes rebelles" ( Democratic Book Publishing, 2010). #play #game #horses #animal #Buzkashi #Badakhshan #village #horseback #player #mountain #shadows #men #book #josephkessel #writer #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati#rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist#webistan #رضادقتى #عكاس @thephotosociety Afghanistan

THE KING’S TEARS #USA, #Washington, Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial In Washington DC, the day is breaking. On this holiday which commemorates the Rev. Martin Luther King, I am on my way to another Peace March. The chill in the air brings to mind all the refugee families who are also marching, trying to survive the cold amidst the European forests and “jungles.” After having passed many hours over many days with King’s acolytes, I perceive a great foreboding in each of their faces, reminiscent of that of former prisoners whose memories are haunted by the tortures they have suffered. Each of them fears that their work consists of eternally starting over, that the threat hanging over them will return over and over again, for them and their descendants. This sense of a vague apprehension that I know so well strikes me from my very first meeting with the followers of Martin Luther King, gathered around the Washington Monument. At the end of a march that lasted several hours in a cold, melancholy ambiance bereft of joy... I did see tears, those of a stone statue, a dreamer, whose gaze has been fixed for eternity, and who seemed to share the sorrow of the moment. Here and there, we continue to dream for more humanity, justice and freedom, ideals that need defending now more than ever. #martinlutherking #martinlutherkingday #martinlutherkingjrday #martinlutherkingmemorial #martinlutherkingmarch #tear #portrait #statue #fight #fightforrights #freedom #equality #american #emotion #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى #عكاس @thephotosociety Washington, District of Columbia

China, #Xinjiang Photography is a question of patience, of determination and passion. While working on the preparation of the reportage in the province of Xinjiang, where Uygur, Tajik and Kazakhs tribe live, we spent few years with National geographic Magazine to get the authorization from the Chinese authorities. Then, when we've got them, I went there twice and spent each time few months covering everything I could witness. I knew that this reportage, in this remote area, was exclusive and rare. One day, after hours and hours of traveling by car, I reached an incredible place, a frozen lake in the Kunlun Mountains. Sometimes that kind of gift of nature gives you the enthusiasm, the will to continue the long road of witnessing beauty and the turmoil of our world. #easternturkestan #mountains #lake #lac #nature #pure #solitude #loneliness #blue #sky #bleu #ciel #clouds #nuage #frozen #gele #snow #neige #contrast #photooftheday #photojournalism​ ​#reza​ ​#rezaphoto #rezadeghati​ ​#rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist​ ​#webistan #رضادقتى#عكاس​ ​@thephotosociety @webistan China

Unequal Combat Afghanistan So many wars, years and years, dramas and one sole ambition: providing a glimpse into the powerlessness and fragility of man faced with the violence of combat, the fear which has taken the world hostage in a way that is increasingly hard to contain within a photo frame. An unequal combat. How can one create an image that provides an insight into this reality? Photography is also a matter of expectations, and surprise. On this night in 1983, it was the first offensive on Kabul of a handful of mujaheddin. Fifty-four combatants and myself, flat on the ground, while Russian fire, which was impressive if inaccurate, tore across the black sky in blazing red trails. During the night, I risked raising my head to take a few photos. We were in the heart of the conflict, and this image bears witness to our night of fire and flame. #war #red #bullets #kabul #guerre #tir #conflicts #conflit #photographie #témoin #witness #témoigner #witnessing #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى# عكاس@thephotosociety @webistan Afghanistan

Afghanistan On the road to survive In Afghanistan, when the guns of war went to silence, it was time of reconstruction and pacification. After a decade of resistance against the occupying Russian Army, the Afghans forced the Soviet forces to retreat and were then left with a ravaged country: towns, villages and infrastructures were destroyed, five million refugees were scattered throughout Pakistan, Tajikistan and Iran, minefields proliferated, and a wounded, incapacitated population mourned their wounded and dead, and the country remained divided by ethnic conflicts. Sadruddin Agha Khan was named Coordinator for the United Nations Humanitarian and Economic Assistance Programs relating to the people of Afghanistan. One day in May in 1989, he called upon me to do a photo reportage for the United Nations for a month and a half. After that first month, I was asked to lay my cameras aside to become a consultant in the Northern Provinces, and attempt to open up the roads for wheat shipments coming in from Termez. For nine months, I put aside my job as a photojournalist to provide aid to the Afghan people in a way that was more concrete. I met that man on his long way back to his village and home, he was walking for hours carrying a heavy bag of wheat, just to survive. #man #littlegirl #blanket#purple#road #traveler #refugee#encounter#sitting #arid #silence#grandfather#granddaughter #proud#destitute#photooftheday#photojournalism​ ​#reza​ ​#rezaphoto#rezadeghati​ ​#rezaphotography#rezaphotojournalist​ ​#webistan#رضادقتى#عكاس​ ​@thephotosociety Afghanistan

The vast weariness of war. How many humans being I have met, on the roads of conflicts, despite the courage, the determination, the dedication to a cause, an idea, a freedom... How many I have met overwhelmed by the weariness of war, even a brief instant? I was in the middle of war in Afghanistan between the army of a Russian empire and the afghan resistance. #war #afghan #weariness #conflict #lonely #loneliness #decouragement #solitude #man #homme #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist#webistan رضادقتى# عكاس@thephotosociety Afghanistan

Tranquility #Algeria, Sidi Ali In the south of Algeria, in the city of Sidi Ali, the villagers and Tuaregs from the surrounding encampments have gathered to celebrate the birth of the prophet Mohammad. The clamor of festivities begins to wind down at twilight. From the doorway of his home made of earth, a man observes as peace settles once again over the village.

On the Road to Exile #Afghanistan The war against the Soviet invaders raged for four years. Towns and villages, plains and countryside were all the theater for the terrors of this unequal struggle. The Russian soldiers were gaining ground. Men, women and children who were fleeing the combat zones had to hurry along roads full of natural obstacles, such as the Konar River. People swarmed onto makeshift crafts and, in the scramble, some died, trampled or drowned. Others managed to grab hold of the barges. Sometimes, the Russian helicopters targeted these fleeing rafts, who were easy marks, trapped in the middle of the river. My only memory is one of chaos. The road of the traveler is full of silent encounters, strangers face to face between two questionings, that of the inhabitant and that of the person passing through. A little further, sitting alongside a dirt road winding through the arid plain, I had a silent encounter with this grandfather and his granddaughter, proud and destitute, who observed me, the foreigner.

Erase the dicator. For all Iranians who look for freedom. #Guinea | 1984 Many of the countries in Africa gained their independence after World War II. Often, they have artificial borders, arbitrarily drawn up by their former colonizers, who had to cede power to the leaders of the countries’ independence movements. But after years of rule, some of those “liberators” have become dictators, often supported by the ex-colonists. Such was the case with Ahmed Sékou Touré, who ruled over Guinea for 25 years. His death, while he was abroad, left a power vacuum that led to a battle for control. I was among a group of about a hundred journalists authorized to cover his funeral. After the funeral was over, we were supposed to leave the country, going without being able to cover the struggle for succession, which would occur in the darkness of misinformation. Pleading that I was physically ill, I asked to stay for a few more days. Three days later, a military coup d’état took place. Though peaceful, it put a stop to the rivalry for Sékou Touré’s throne, and marked the end of his regime. Ecstatic, the newly freed population celebrated. In the streets, people sang Bob Marley lyrics and danced to the beat of drums. Every image of the man who had ruled in terror was obliterated. Stone in hand, this boy spent all day long scratching out every portrait of Sékou Touré that he found on his way. This photograph went around the world. Some months later, I heard from a fellow journalist that the image had turned into a kind of symbol. It had been widely distributed in other countries in Africa, where it was used to deliver a message of hope: “Look, you can erase dictators.” #child #boy #​africa ​#freedom #dictature #hope #colors #painting #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى#عكاس@thephotosociety Conakry, Guinea

In Medina, in Saudi Arabia, after a long negotiation I have got permission to photograph inside the mosque of the Prophet Muhammad. A touch of light illuminates the man who reads the Koran. I love the atmosphere of prayers whispered in the secrecy of mosques, temples, synagogues, churches. This providential ray of sunshine allowed me to capture this intimate atmosphere. #humanity #alone #intimate #loneliness #religion #pilgrim #muslim #ritual #koran #mosque #prayer #pray #saudiarabia #man #old #silence #readi#praying #photooftheday#photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto#rezadeghati #rezaphotography#rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى#عكاس @thephotosociety Medina, Saudi Arabia

A collective fervor Saudi Arabia In the beginning they were united but soon they start the division and created different branches and each branch they claimed that they are the one that they are right and the chaos started and they list unity. I was on a long term assignment for National Geographic on the footsteps of Abraham, father of the three monotheist religions. I had traveled in different countries as Egypt, Israel, Palestine... I reached Saudi Arabia where I spent time during the pilgrimage. I had the chance to get the permission for aerial shooting of the mecca. This picture telles about the gathering of women and men sharing the same devotion, but also, on photographic point of view, this image is very graphic, a mix of lines and curves in a conceptual composition. Every year, two million pilgrims from around the world gather in Mecca for the hajj. Over the course of the year, a total of 10 million pilgrims will come to Mecca. During the hajj, Muslims perform a ritual in strict accordance with the Koran at the Kaaba, the large black cube at the center of the holy city’s Great Mosque. Muslims believe Abraham built the Kaaba (which Muslims consider the house of God) with the help of his son Ishmael. #graphicart #humanity #aerial#multitude #religion #pilgrim #mecca#hajj #muslim #ritual #koran #kaaba#mosque #fervor #prayer#pray#saudiarabia #people#crowd#praying #photooftheday#photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto#rezadeghati #rezaphotography#rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى#عكاس @thephotosociety

The builders of millennia I was in Egypt for National geographic Magazine. I met him in Cairo. Nine years old, he spends 12 hours a day making and carrying pottery. He toils in a makeshift workshop, ashed with walls covered in thick, black soot. The fuel used to heat the kilns comes from Cairo’s trash. He inhales the fumes for days, years on end. He sees nothing all day except the dark and dirty walls, the dizzying spin of the potter’s wheel, and the clay that he pulls up from the wheel, stretching and shaping it until it is transformed. How many are there of these “children of the South” — these underage workers who spend their days holed up in workshops and factories in order to make consumer goods to satisfy Western markets? The list of products they make with their small, nimble hands is lengthy, and it includes dolls, sneakers, and clothes. The children have to work to help feed their families. Child labor sometimes ensures a precarious financial stability in countries whose economies are in peril, but mostly it benefits multinational corporations, which profit from such cheap labor. Looking at the images of these children, whose futures are so blighted, leads me to the sad reflection that they are less the “builders of the third millennium” than the “slaves of the third millennium.” The Egyptian people, the proud heirs of ancestors who left us the Pyramids as evidence of their genius and resolve, today oscillate between misery and serenity, living a life of toil but approaching it with apparent nonchalance — a people who, it seems to me, are traveling through history with a spirit of grandeur and decadence.

Springtime #Afghanistan, #Kabul. On the first day of spring, celebrated like New Year’s Day in Afghanistan, central Asia and Iran, I wandered through the town’s huge cemetery on a hillside. Irregularly shaped tomb stones, like menhirs bursting from the earth, indicated the presence of the dead: those who fell in the endless battles which have shaken the country, those, victims of fratricidal struggles, and all the others. I was not alone in having chosen the cemetery to celebrate spring, life after the long winter. There were a great many families. Children played and ran in their party clothes. I caught him smiling behind a balloon his parents had bought him for the occasion; a fleeting poetic moment betwixt memories of war and the present peace.
