Sisters - town of Ba'adre, Iraqi Kurdistan (2015)

Sisters - town of Ba'adre, Iraqi Kurdistan (2015)

They are home, something they thought they had lost. Their family fled to Turkey as IS was poised to march across the Mesopotamian Plain from the Sinjar into Iraqi Kurdistan. A month later the family returned after the peshmergha established a defensive military frontline. Both sisters are in school and life seems normal, but it is forever changed. Their mother's eyes fills with tears as she recounts the stories; the father is stoic. (April 2015)
