THE EYES OF EARTH tells a story about the environmental disaster at Salt Lake Urmia of Iran | Unframed, Hahnemühle Photo Rag® 308gsm Matte | 100% cotton paper
About the photograph: Urmia Lake in the north of Iran was once the largest lake in the Middle East and the second-largest salt lake on the planet. Lake has lost about 88 per cent of its surface area during the past three decades due to water mismanagement after the Iran-Iraq war and climatic changes. On the shore of Sharafkhaneh port in 2015, an abandoned ship sits wedged against a pier that leads nowhere. Sharafkhaneh port was once one of the most important ports on Lake Urmia. Ships used these piers to move people and equipment between cities around the lake. It has shut down, and few remaining ships have gone aground.
