International mother language day ​#china, #xinjiang (#easternturkestan). north of the #taklamakan #desert i was on assignment for national geographic on xinjiang. the famous taklamakan desert stretched away in front of me. i was going to take on a 370-mile-long road crossing through the vast expanse with no landmark, deprived of oasis, rocks and small shrubs, a mere succession of sand dunes. by the dried-out bed of the tarim river, a uyghur village was the last possible stop before the desert. as i often did while traveling, i asked where the school was. ten students of all ages were listening to the teacher. the broken benches, the dirty walls, the rare and sorry-loo- king school books showed that no subsidies had been granted for a long time by the chinese authorities. first, i was agreeably surprised to notice that the books were written in uyghur. then i quickly understood that i had been deceived. elementary school students may have the right to study texts written in their native language, but only until junior high school where only mandarin is taught. however, the chinese assimilation policy for minorities is much more efficient and deceitful. moreover, elementary school students do have the right to read and write in their native language, but their books are always made under the control of the chinese authorities, which impose their own version of history. text written by rachel deghati. #education #school #child #student #classroom #internationalmotherlanguageday #easternturkistan #future #learning #chinese #uygur #picoftheday #igers #photooftheda #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى #عكاس @thephotosociety

#france, village of saint martin, #comminges at the heart of the #pyrénées, i had a fortuitous encounter with a village elder who was out in front of his house for a bit of air. i was intrigued by all the elements in his appearance that indicated a long life of labor: the blue pants of a factory worker or peasant, his strong knotted hands, marked by work and time. and his dignity. this photograph was taken during a reportage in france on the regions of the languedoc roussillon and midi pyrénées, while assembling material for a book for national geographic. text written by rachel deghati. published in "destins croisés" (hors collection publishing in 2002). #portrait #oldman #village #labor #typical #hardwork #hardlife #beret #familytrip #french #midipyrenees #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى #عكاس @thephotosociety

Devotion #pakistan i had the chance to got to shewan sharif, while i was doing what we used to call "a country story" for national geographic magazine. i met this whirling dervish , among others, during annual celebration of urs at the shrine of lal shahbaz qalandar a 13th century sufi master worshiped alike by hindus and muslims. born as seyed shah hussain (usman) marandi, he later on titled as lal (red) shahbaz ( falcon) qalandar (as he belonged to qalandria order of sufism)..different sect of religion brings different ways of celebrating the urs of lal shahbaz qalandar. within this group of devotees, they dance as they celebrate his reunion with god. they whirl as a form of mystical absorption in the divine. text written by rachel deghati. published in reporters without borders (2008). #devotion #dervish #celebration #urs #qalandar #sufi #sufism #religion #spirituality #devote #fervor #mystical #man #hair #picoftheday #pakistanese #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى #عكاس @thephotosociety

#egypt, #cairo beggars congregate in public squares and other places popular with cairo’s tourists. lying on his skateboard, which serves as his legs, saïd spends the day begging, sometimes stopping to play a game of soccer with his companions in misfortune. he lost his legs after being run over by a train. he had jumped on the train for a free ride because he had no money to pay the ticket. now a lonely little boy, he’d had to go out on his own after the accident and had joined a team of beggars, a small group of boys ruled by a teenager who guarded their turf and took a share of their earnings. the teenager, whose shadow looms over saïd, was coming to whip saïd with his belt, accusing him of not working hard enough. it was my first assignment for national geography in 1991 publishing this kind of photographs was rare in the magazine, but finally it was published and then my brother manoocher, photographer for agence france press -afp- and later for associated press -ap- find him and helped saïd and his family. text written by rachel deghati. published in "war + peace" (national geographic publishing, 2007), "reza, entre guerre et paix" (national geographic publishing, 2008) and "derrière l'objectif" (hoëbeke publishing, 2010). #child #littleboy #victim #tragedy #aggression #afraid #said #poverty #beggar #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza​ ​#rezaphoto #rezadeghati#rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى#عكاس@thephotosociety

Love of freedom kurdistan regional government - iraq what if, in the beginning, there was love? that is the question this couple asks themselves amidst the metal of bombs and recycled artillery. this work at the azadi park in duhok city is by kurdish artist adnan shino. the ensemble is called "freedom panorama." since 2013, i have conducted a large-scale photography project about the people of the krg (kurdistan regional government - iraq) — their ability to resist, their hopes and sorrows, and the way they organize the culture and spirituality of their society. in the heart of each kurd i encountered over the course of my many journeys to kurdistan beat a desire for freedom. here, love and freedom are genuine life commitments, preserved and passed down over millennia. their inspiring story attests to the incredible capacity for resilience, renewed with each new drama, each betrayal, that i found among the kurds, who have persevered against all odds. i could tell you one story after the other, like a narrative rosary that invokes an unshakable faith in life. today, i thought of this statue made of iron and love that unites this couple in love as they gaze ahead with a crazy yet indestructible hope. text written by rachel deghati. #kurdistanrenaissance #kurdistanregionalgovernement #freedom #love #valentinesday #valentine #together #couples #kurdish #duhok #kurdistani #resistance #heart #statue #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى#عكاس @thephotosociety

In the name of love #pakistan in sehwan sharif, in pakistan, i spent several days covering the annual ceremony of urs of lal shabaz qalandar at the entrance of his shrine. born as seyed shah hussain (usman) marandi, he later on titled as lal (red) shahbaz ( falcon) qalandar (as he belonged to qalandria order of sufism). he was a 13th century sufi master and he has been worshiped alike by hindus and muslims. .while some devotees belonging to different sect of sufism celebrate his death as his reunion with god by performing dhmal, an ecstatic dance, others beloging to mainstream shi'a, seek to emulate his suffering by self mutilation and slapping their chests to show their grieving. this picture is a part of my national geographic magazine assignment on pakistan. text written by rachel deghati. #devotion #celebration #urs #qalandar #sufi #sufism #religion #spirituality #devote #fervor #mystical #aerialview #picoftheday #pakistanese #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى #عكاس @thephotosociety

A souvenir from the arab spring #cairo revolution on february 2011, on an assignment for national geographic magazine, i went to cairo to cover the "arab spring" and the impact of the revolution on the pyramids and on the remains of the past sheltered in museums. on tahrir square, i encountered many opposition protesters, like this young man who was determined to make his voice heard. i took part in a revolution that was highly meditated, thanks to the numerous visual testimonies shared by the citizens on social medias. hundreds had started to go down the streets of cairo in january, to show their discontent and protest against a government that did not listen to them anymore. the whole political system was plagued by corruption, unemployment and a lack of liberties from which the people suffered. the revolution was underway and led to the fall of the president, hosni mubarak. soon after, tunisia, jodan, yemen, libya, morocco, and bahreïn followed the egyptian example: the arab spring was underway. today, the situation in egypt is still unstable: adbel fattah al-sissi rules the country with an iron fist. #egyptian #egypt #revolution #arabspring #egyptianrevolution #tahrirsquare #opposition #protestor #testimony #flag #egyptianflag #man #shadow #victory #proud #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى#عكاس @thephotosociety

Animal park of #argelès-gazost, #france after months spent wandering alone through the south of france, over the course of the four seasons as i worked on a book for national geographic, we decided that we would share this adventure as a family during a few weeks of the summer. our children were small (2 and 7 years of age) and we had always tried to make them understand the realities of the work of a photographer... then we had a chance to really make them a part of it! our little girl djanan engaged in a dialogue with a marmot who had made a break from the park and was successfully returned there by the park rangers. text written by rachel deghati. #cute #joy #happiness #complicity #goodmoment #goodtime #littlegirl #familytrip #french #languedocroussillon #midipyrenees #nature #animal #marmot #animalpark #nationalpark #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى #عكاس @ddjanan @thephotosociety
