Kurdish New Years – A1


"The Kurds of northern Iraq celebrate Newroz, a Kurdish New Years celebration, each year in March. I had heard about the torch bearers that run up and down the mountains of Akre while tracers from machine guns and fireworks light up the night sky, but nothing prepared me for how visually intense an experience it truly was. This shot was taken halfway up a mountain just as the young men were beginning their descent - carrying the fire into the center of the town of Akre. Amberly Kramhoft, Sydney." – Cengiz Yar
