On August 3, 2014, the self-proclaimed IS (Islamic state) unleashed an unholy genocidal attack against the Yezidis living in the Sinjar (Shingal) Region of northwestern Iraq. Through these and other photographs, and speaking engagements, I hope to reach others that they may better understand the Yezidis who are being so brutally victimized.
(Please consider making a donation to one of the international aid organizations, such as UNICEF, that are doing their best to help the hundreds of thousands of Yezidi refugees.).
These photographs were shown in an exhibit entitled, "What Was Lost in the Sinjar" at a Kurdish Studies Conference held at the University of Central Florida in cooperation with Soran University, in January 2015.
