Movement #france i have always been a great reader of poetry. i was raised in the persian culture which is profoundly marked by great poets like saadi, hafez and rumi, to cite only a few among so many, both from centuries past, as well as contemporaries. they are the very breath of persian culture and society. reading poetry has enabled me to maintain a link with my identity throughout my life, but it has also helped sustain me through many dark hours in my time as a witness of man’s inhumanity to man. the sufi poet rumi evokes the state of trance. i wanted to create an image of this form of osmosis between thought, beauty and the body – all this is translated into the freedom and grace of movement. the iranian sufi dancer shahrokh meskhin is a master of this type of transcendence. text written by rachel deghati. published in "l'envol, la conférence des oiseaux" (democratic books publishing, 2001).#dance #dancer #danceislife #poetry #rumi #rumilove #movement #shahrokhmeshkinghalam #iranian_gram #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى عكاس @thephotosociety

Photo by @rezaphotography daily bath village of chanjon, #rio, #guatemala, after having crossed the mountains and plateaus, passing by small towns nestled in the valleys, we reach the tiny guatemalan hamlet of chanjon, consisting of but a few houses, no more than fifteen. the families animate this community, sharing their daily routines, their work tending the earth and the coffee harvest. in this rural and isolated environment, 1,800 meters in altitude, the day commences with the sunrise and the sound of a rooster crowing. the women play the role of housekeepers in the morning. some of them among the community have chosen to be single, raising their children on their own. members of this community of 22 families joined an association called “asdeflor” in order to unite the strengths of each individual and to share out the products of the harvest. text written by rachel deghati. picture taken while on assignment on aaa sustainable quality program, published in the book "soul of coffee", michel lafon publishing in seven langages. #woman #farm #farmer #worker #child #coffee #coffeeworker #plantation #bath #cultivator #labor #baby #community #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى# عكاس @thephotosociety #amazingculture

Regram @rezaphotography #pakistan, #balochistan i was fortunate to have been able to discover the arid region of balochistan in pakistan while working on assignment for national geographic. in this region, it is not only the children who suffer from the lack of educational institutions, but the entire population who have been abandoned by the ruling powers. the money from the pipeline that wends its way past their miserable habitations goes right into the pockets of the “lords of the punjab,” thus dubbed by the venerable baloch chief, akbar bugti. bugti was a former minister and member of parliament who was assassinated when he tried to fight for balochi rights. in that region, the poorest of the poor are undoubtedly the nomadic tribes, who constantly wander the barren mountains, like this young nomad girl. text written by rachel deghati. published in "l'envol, la conférence des oiseaux" (democratic books publishing, 2001).#portrait #girl #akbarbugti #pakistanese #sadness #balochiculture #balochigirls #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى عكاس @thephotosociety

The gaze of childhood #france at the beginning of their lives, the awakening senses of children lead them to experiment and tackle the most improbable obstacles. i love the intensity and depth with which they often perceive things and people. on this day, in the abandonment of the heat of the summer, our daughter djanan suddenly froze, forgetting the apple she had been devouring eagerly, her gaze fixed for a long period, as if hypnotized by a scene. the minutes stretched out as i observed her drinking in what she saw, hesitating between reminiscence and discovery. text written by rachel deghati. #french #littlegirl #cute ##cuteness #daughter #daughterlove #portrait #goodmoment #goodtime #childhood #happykid#picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى عكاس @thephotosociety

Encounters #ethiopia we made up a rather motley crew: six youths from six different continents, twenty-four young ethiopians – some orphans, some from disadvantaged backgrounds – and assistants from unicef. the first group were the winners of an international photography contest launched by unicef and sony and coordinated by the world photography association. the theme was the rights of children, and i was leading it, along with david beckham. the winners won the chance to participate in one of my workshops, conducted in ethiopia, along with twenty-four young ethiopians who had been presented with cameras. our happy group set off, trying to share moments that would build bridges between cultures, social classes and destinies. all of them shared this apprenticeship in photography and their view of the world around them. in a little village with houses made of beaten earth, natural light illuminates this girl’s face and intensifies the lively colors of her clothes and the rooster in her hands, transforming her into a princess full of grace, immortalized by these photographers in training. text written by rachel deghati. #portrait #girl #unicef #ethiopian #ethiopiangirl #unicef #photographyworkshop #education #hope #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى عكاس @thephotosociety

#libya, #tripoli when i was in tripoli, working on assignment for national geographic on a story about libya, i met rabia ben barka, a fashion designer. she was dressing a model in her workshop. when a poet saw this picture, she came up with these words: you seem among the indifference of your own thoughts. your perfect body and the beauty of your features sublimate your empty gaze upon the clients avid for display. you lose a part of your humanity and you slip into the featureless life of a beautiful object. you are enveloped in clothing and inhabited by revolt. text written by rachel deghati. #woman #model #fashiondesigner #mode #fashion #clothes #red #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى عكاس @thephotosociety

#lebanon while covering war in lebanon, i found that the children who lived in the palestinian refugee camps of lebanon played like children everywhere: they kicked balls or pretended to be soldiers, using pieces of wood as toy pistols. over the years, though, the innocence and spontaneity of their games disappeared. as israeli attacks increased, the sudden raids, the images of horror, and the massacres began to dominate their imaginations. wearing hoods, they roamed as gangs in the ruins of bombed-out, deserted houses, and their weapons were realistic wooden rifle. text written by rachel deghati. published in "war + peace" (national geographic publishing, 2007), "reza, entre guerre et paix" (national geographic publishing, 2008). #children #game #war #innocence #childhood #pistol #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى عكاس @thephotosociety

#repost @rezaphotography with @repostapp ・・・ #panjshir province dear friends, many of you have been asking about my books. i would like to share for the next weeks the covers of all of them in different languages and their story. ahmad shah massoud, the “lion of panjsher”, was the principal opponent to the taliban regime from 1996. as early as 1979, massoud was a war leader and fought for freedom against the soviet invaders. twenty years resistance, twenty years spent carrying the flame of liberty and attempting to install peace in afghanistan. an intimate and realistic portrait of commander massoud and the afghan resistance spanning twenty years emerge in my photographs, with whom massoud “liked to play chess when the canons ceased firing”. this is a unique epic with commentaries written by jean-pierre perrin, a journalist for libération and specialist on afghanistan. a collector book. #afghanistan #panjshir #massoud #commandermassoud #afghanresistance #portrait #resistance #afghan #mujahideen #leader #fight #man #tribute #friendship #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #عكاس#رضادقتى @thephotosociety
