Khabour in a Thousand Words

May 18, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

In a matter of few hours, in one moonless night on Feb 23rd 2015, the Khabour Valley transformed from a vibrant 12,000-strong community to an abandoned string of ghost towns. The story of the khabour valley in Syria is a crucial piece in understanding the Assyrian modern history. This collection of photographs shows the ISIS-inflicted devastation of the Khabour villages in Syria to both document the atrocities, and incite action.

Details: 23 high grade prints on 11 by 14 inch. paper. Most are Black and White photographs in exception of few. All photographs are $200/each. Purchases are tax exempt.

Sales: All proceeds will be donated towards rebuilding Assyrian infrastructure in Iraq and Syria.

Photographer: Sargon Saadi is a LA-based filmmaker who captured these photographs on his last trip to Syria in 2018.
He made several documentaries in Iraq and Syria including “The Last Plight”, and “Silence After The Storm”.
