LIFE AROUND HAMUN WETLANDS OF IRAN|Unframed, Hahnemühle Photo Rag® 308gsm Matte | 100% cotton paper |
This photo showcases a local woman making her way home in a village near the Hamoun wetlands, once known as one of the world's most important wetlands under the Ramsar Convention in 1975. However, the wetlands have experienced significant transformation 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 draw attention to 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).
