Collection

Photographs by Iraqi civilians collection, 2004 April-May 4.0 Linear Feet — 3 boxes; 1 oversize folder — Approximately 507 items

Collection comprises 464 original 4x6 inch color snapshots, 23 13x19 inch color inkjet exhibit prints; roll negatives; and text panels for the exhibit, "Photographs by Iraqi Civilians, 2004." The images are a result of a project, "Iraq From Within," coordinated by the North Carolina-based Daylight Community Arts Foundation, which encouraged Iraqi civilians to document through photographs and captions a point of view unavailable to the foreign press. The original color snapshots, taken by men and women chiefly in Baghdad and Fallujah, show families at home and in their neighborhoods, various workplaces, and scenes of wartime destruction. Taken as a whole, the collection conveys the impacts on men, women, and children of the 2003 U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq. Acquired as part of the Archive of Documentary Arts at Duke University.

Collection comprises 464 original 4x6 inch color snapshots taken by Iraqi civilians; 23 13x19 inch color inkjet exhibit prints, selected from the color snapshots; roll negatives; and text panels for the exhibit, "Photographs by Iraqi Civilians, 2004." The collection materials originated from a project, "Iraq From Within," coordinated by the North Carolina-based Daylight Community Arts Foundation, encouraging Iraqi civilians to document through photographs and narrative captions a point of view unavailable to the foreign press.

Using handheld disposable cameras, Iraqi men and women from in and around Baghdad and Fallujah photographed living conditions during the American occupation following the 2003 invasion of Iraq. The images show families at home and in neighborhoods, as well as scenes such as patients and nurses at a hospital, customers and barbers at a barbershop, students and a teacher at a school, a dentist and patient in a dentist's office, men digging graves, a banner hung in the street, and images of wartime destruction. From the initial group of over 460 images, 23 prints by nine photographers were chosen to form the traveling exhibit "Photographs by Iraqi Civilians, 2004."
