Kurdes, de l'ombre à la lumière


Région autonome depuis 2003, le Kurdistan irakien, longtemps en proie à la guerre, est peu connu des occidentaux. À travers un travail inscrit dans la tradition de la photographie humaniste, Emmanuel Smague nous invite à découvrir un peuple chaleureux, au lendemain de son oppression sous le régime de Saddam Hussein. Il nous dévoile ainsi les multiples facettes de cet endroit du monde dont les habitants représentent la première richesse et nous ouvre les yeux sur une humanité réfugiée sur ses propres terres, celles de ses ancêtres. Le témoignage d’Emmanuel Smague renvoie les regards des Kurdes à nos propres indifférences, pour mieux les graver dans nos mémoires.

Kurds, from darkness to light


An independent region since 2003, Iraqi Kurdistan, war-torn for many years, is little known among Westerners. Through his work in the humanist photographic tradition, Emmanuel Smague invites us to discover a warm people as it emerges from the oppression of Saddam Hussein’s regime. He reveals to us the many faces of this part of the world where people constitute the main wealth and he opens our eyes to people who are refugees on their own land -- the land of their ancestors. Through Emmanuel Smague’s testimonial, our eyes meet the gaze of the Kurds’ eyes lifting the veil of our indifference and indelibly engraving images deep into our memories.

DAY 25: Books


Some children today view reading as a boring chore, but experts encourage parents to recognise the importance of helping children to view books as another form of entertainment just like their other toys.


We have had children’s books around our home since our three year old Son was born. It started with cloth books and plastic bath time books and then things progressed to board books. Now though paper page books have come into their own and he just loves looking at books and listening while Mummy and Daddy read his favourite stories. Our little baby girl is similarly taking an interest in cloth books and we have no doubt that she will develop a great love for books, like her older brother.


Currently our little boy loves all the Disney stories in book form including Jungle Book, Bambi, Peter Pan and 101 Dalmatians. Annuals are another favourite including Bob the Builder, Postman Pat, Thomas the Tank Engine and Winnie the Pooh. Other books he loves include Ladybird books on a wide range of subjects including Visiting the Dentist, Going Swimming, Playschool and Busy Building Site. Having a large range of books available means that he doesn’t get bored and his interest in reading and books is constantly kept strong.


As today’s image hopefully shows, books come in all shapes and sizes, all with a great deal of colour. When you watch a child open a book, you can see straight away that their imagination is awakened and their minds appreciate hearing or reading the words on the pages come to life. As they learn to read the foundation laid during the early years bears fruit as children develop a lifelong love for reading.


Note: the set up for this image meant that the Bambi book was nearly a meter off the ground. There were a huge number of items keeping the books in place (wooden blocks, other books etc). We had one collapse where every book fell to the ground and we had to start again. Eventually we set the camera up with a deep depth of field, a direct link to the PC and we managed to get the required shot pretty quickly. This demonstrates that the time taken in setting up is rewarded.

A note from Karel's Human:


One I had not shared before as I kept it an 'exclusive' for the Karel book. It is one of my favourite Karel pictures.


I am still so happy with how the project turned out and humbled by all the people who encouraged me, believed in it and got themselves a copy.


At the moment 20 more people are on the waiting list for a reprint. I've signed up for 5 books myself, and at 30 we can reprint for 25€/copy.


I've decided I will give it until the end of May to see if there's any more Karel lovers who want 124 pages of high quality satin finish full color gorgeousness in a hard cover. I don't want to pester people by aggressive marketing and I don't know who else would want a book. If you know someone, do give them a shout (details in my profile). I did not create the book because I want to sell and get rich (I do not make any profit, 0.0%). I do feel bad I might have to disappoint the people who are already on the list. On the other hand I don't want them to have to wait forever.

Books are not made for furniture, but there is nothing else that so beautifully furnishes a house.

Please!! NO Glittery Awards or Large Graphics...Buddy Icons are OK. Thank You!

BTW, the book is Don Quixote which makes a great photographic prop but which I've never been able to actually read! LOL!


This is my 26th new heart image this year and I hope my last until 2015! Thanks so much for your patience through all the heart-shapes and bright redness, my friends! My coffee-with-cream colored hearts yesterday and today are a balm for sore eyes!


And may you have a respite from extreme weather conditions! My daughter in Missouri says she is weary of winter while I out here in California am weary of summer, in February! Our temperature today is supposed to reach 81 degrees F. Our rainfall today since July 1 last year has now reached 1.1 inches. We'll gladly take your rain, London! Stay safe from the extremes, my friends!
