LIFE AROUND HAMUN WETLANDS OF IRAN| Unframed, Hahnemühle Photo Rag® 308gsm Matte | 100% cotton paper |
This photograph captures women searching for herbs on their agricultural land in a village near the Afghanistan border and the Hamoun wetlands. Once considered one of the world's significant wetlands under the Ramsar Convention in 1975 and the largest freshwater lake in Iran's plain, the Hamoun wetlands have turned into a desert-like landscape in the past 15 years due to drought, Iran-Afghan conflicts over the Helmand River, and the construction of dams for poppy cultivation in Afghanistan. The "Hamoun Wetland to Wasteland" project aims to raise awareness of the water crisis, climate change, and drought in the south and southeast of Iran, including the Persian Gulf and its coastal areas, by highlighting the environmental, economic, and social impacts of recent droughts (2018).
