A Public Sphere for Poetry, Politics, and Nature
From director Janssen Powers:
If you Google image search “Iraq” looking for photos of anything other than soldiers and war then you’re in for some serious scrolling…
Since the spring of 2016 I’ve been traveling back and forth to Iraq working on a longer form doc with Nations Media. The Iraq I’ve come to know and love over the course of these visits is a drastically different place than version of the country I grew up seeing in the news.
On my most recent trip I brought a 16mm film camera, one lens and a few cans of film to capture portraits of people I met along the way.

Special thanks to:
All of the wonderful people who were brave enough to let me take their picture
