# Saudi Arabia

Fervor in all its Forms

On several occasions between 2000 and 2003, I found myself in Mecca on assignment for several reportages for National Geographic magazine, as well as the National Geographic Channel. The first one was on Abraham, the second was for a documentary,"Inside Mecca" and the third a cover story for NGM about Saudi Arabia. I have always been fascinated by places of pilgrimage, where one can readily see the fervor of the devotees in their attitudes and faces. I was able to negotiate an exceptional level of access over the course of three years. Consequently, I was able to fly over Mecca and its surrounding area. I decided to concentrate upon this immense crowd, harmoniously united in one symbolic whole. The contrast between the Kaaba and the movement around it was reminiscent of waves. These were created by the believers, men and women, who were circling the Kaaba slowly. The slightly violet hue, the light, and the moment of the day when I took the shot lend an atmosphere of deep peace to the photograph. The contrast between the massive black cube and all that surrounds it is very serene, and creates a sense of visual harmony.

رضا دقتی (۱۳۳۳ در تبریز)، فتوژورنالیست ایرانی نشریه نشنال جئوگرافی است که در دنیا او را با نام رضا می‌شناسند.
رضا از ۱۴ سالگی عکاسی را خودآموز یادگرفته‌است. وی همچنین از دانشگاه تهران فارغ التحصیل رشته معماری است.
رضا پیش از انقلاب بیشتر به عکاسی معماری مشغول بوده اما با شروع درگیری‌های انقلاب ۱۳۵۷ ایران، وی به عکاسی خبری روی آورد. دقتی از سال ۱۳۵۷ تا ۱۳۶۰، مجموعه‌ای از تحولات پس از انقلاب و درگیری‌ها و کشتار در ترکمن صحرا و کردستان تهیه کرد. عدم سازگاری عکس‌های او با خواست حکومت توتالیتر اسلامی ایران، رضا را مجبور به ترک ایران و مهاجرت به اروپا برای همیشه کرد. رضا پس از آن به در مجله نیوزویک به‌عنوان خبرنگار بخش خاورمیانه در فاصله سال‌های ۱۳۶۲ تا ۱۳۶۷ فعالیت کرد. اولین گزارش رضا برای نشریه نشنال جئوگرافی، در سال ۱۳۷۲ با عنوان «قاهره، قلب خروشان مصر» منتشر شد. در حال حاضر او با این مجله نامدار همکاری می‌کند و تا کنون بیش از صد کشور را تحت پوشش مطبوعاتی قرار داده است. گزارشهای او بازگو کننده جنگ ها، انقلاب‌ها و مصائب انسانهاست. شاید هیچ خبرنگاری در دنیا به اندازه رضا در صحنه‌های جنگ حضور مستقیم نداشته است.
رضا دقتی همواره تصویر را به عنوان وسیله‌ای برای پیشبرد اهداف انسان دوستانه و مبارزات خود برعلیه استبداد به کار گرفته است. وی در سال ۱۹۹۰، پس از عقب نشینی شوروی از افغانستان، مسئولیت پخش کمکهای جامعه بین‌الملل را از طرف سازمان ملل متحد پذیرفت و به‌دنبال این تجربه بنیاد فرهنگی آیینه را در سال ۲۰۰۱ در کابل تأسیس کرد. در "بنیاد فرهنگی آیینه" تاکنون صدها تن از دختران و پسران افغان در رشته‌های روزنامه نگاری، عکاسی، فیلم برداری وطراحی تحت نظر اودر بالاترین سطح حرفه‌ای آموزش یافته و جذب دنیای کار حرفه‌ای در سطح بین‌المللی شده‌اند.

Prayer

In the volcanic region of Tamanrasset, a pure moment of grace; the guardian of the site has marked out his place of prayer by lining up stones along the ground.
Man and the rituals which demarcate his days, and celebrate his faith seem immutable and indifferent to the hustle and bustle of tourists who come in search of that very tranquility.

Bugün @rezaphotography Sevgili Reza Deghati'ye buradan bir selam yollayarak başlamak istedim güne... Reza, geçtiğimiz aylarda Sabancı Vakfı @kisafilmplatformu kanaat önderi olması nedeniyle İstanbul'daydı...Burada kaldığı süre boyunca kendi tarihçeme nice güzel anılar biriktirdik... Ama @kisafilmplatformu için yarattığı motto ve devamında gençlerle buluşması inanılmaz ilham verdi... Şu söylediği hiç aklımdan çıkmıyor... Hepimizin dünyada kardeş olduğu ve aslında birbirimizle dayanışma ve barış içinde olduğumuzda, bunun kendi büyük ailemize katkı sunduğunu söylemişti... Ben evrende kocaman bir aile olduğumuzun hep farkındayım ama böyle duymak bana çok iyi gelmişti... Bu sabah bunu hatırladım... Ve Reza'nın çok sevdiğim bir fotoğrafı ile güne başladım... Bu arada @kisafilmplatformu mottosunu da tekrar paylaşmak istedim : 'Mülteci kadınlar tarihin sessiz kahramanlarıdır... Onlara destek olmak için bize katılın...' #rezadeghati #kisafilmplatformu #zeynepatakan #mültecikadınlar

About a year ago, I had the chance to meet world acclaimed photojournalist and humanitarian Reza Deghati. If you’re not familiar with his work, pick up your nearest copy of National Geographic. Chances are Reza took the cover photo.

Most of his portfolio focuses on war torn regions. He often spends 5+ years in conflict zones just to be able to capture and share the untold story of the men, women and children impacted by these disasters. His words leave you hanging. Tears swell in your eyes as he shows you stories you had never before imagined.
I admire this man to the utmost. His passion, commitment and absolute obsession with photojournalism has given us rare glimpses into disaster areas. Even more, his constant efforts to change the world through the power of photography truly leaves you enlightened. It was an honor being in Reza’s presence.

Passage

#Afghanistan, Panjshir Valley, Malespe

At that time, I was contributing on a documentary by National Geographic Channel on Massoud and his long resistance with the writer and journalist, Sebastian Junger.The refugees could then reach the village of Malespe, risking their lives by crossing the Panjshir River using a rope bridge containing only a few pieces of wood. A decade later, I went to Afghanistan with my son. During that time, reconstruction had changed the country. The bridge was still made of wood, but more secure. Freedom was in the air.

#Egypt #Cairo
Free soul

I was on assignment for National Geographic on Caspian Sea.

He is from here and from there, from the East and from the West. Since he was a little child, my son, Delazad, has traveled around the world, sometimes sharing my life as a photojournalist. Whether traveling with our family or alone with me, he was eager for discovery, entering fully into our adventures, like a dervish looking for knowledge. As a baby, he used to fall asleep to the sound of troubadours.As a boy, he rode his scooter down the streets of Paris, Rollerbladed through New York, went on horseback in Libya. Crossing the Bosporus, he watched as seagulls flew in the sky, melding with the minarets. Dressed like an Egyptian child of the past, he played with the lights of a traditional house in Cairo, stepping on the patches of light. Later, when he was older, he drew a map of an imaginary subway for Kabul. Through these experiences, he has savored life, learned, seen, and felt. The world has become his school, his home. Like him, his friends are from here and from there, from the East and from the West.When my son was seven days old, an old man whispered in his ear, “Your name will be Delazad, which means ‘free soul.’” A few years later, the name Djanan was whispered in his sister’s ear, a name that means “breath of life.” From these first, secret whisperings, I hope that they will live by the idea of building a world that is open and expansive, without borders and without wars.

The traveler

As a child and young man, I used to read poetry written by authors of great destiny, whose travel stories have come down through the centuries. Hafez travelled only through his teeming imagination and sense of observation while Saadi is known to have travelled for thirty years: the experiences that emanate from his writings have inspired many writers such as Goethe.

This man and his bundle, captured on the roads of Afghanistan, reminds me the poet of my childhood.

# Saudi Arabia

Fervor in all its Forms

On several occasions between 2000 and 2003, I found myself in Mecca on assignment for several reportages for National Geographic magazine, as well as the National Geographic Channel. The first one was on Abraham, the second was for a documentary,"Inside Mecca" and the third a cover story for NGM about Saudi Arabia. I have always been fascinated by places of pilgrimage, where one can readily see the fervor of the devotees in their attitudes and faces. I was able to negotiate an exceptional level of access over the course of three years. Consequently, I was able to fly over Mecca and its surrounding area. I decided to concentrate upon this immense crowd, harmoniously united in one symbolic whole. The contrast between the Kaaba and the movement around it was reminiscent of waves. These were created by the believers, men and women, who were circling the Kaaba slowly. The slightly violet hue, the light, and the moment of the day when I took the shot lend an atmosphere of deep peace to the photograph. The contrast between the massive black cube and all that surrounds it is very serene, and creates a sense of visual harmony.

The Solitude of the Traveler

#Afghanistan

This traveler, poised on the summit of a mountain brought to mind my own road traveled. I discovered the enlightened wandering of a traveler during my adolescence in my native Iran, and I found I loved it. It is a feeling that pushes one out of one’s comfort zone, getting on the road, exposing oneself to the unknown, to encounters, sometimes, even to danger, to the suffering when you push yourself and the joy of taking a break and finding a welcoming smile. I have often hiked alone, with only my camera for companion. Those years whetted my appetite for taking to the road in search of the unknown, which could take the form of a person or a landscape. I have always had a desire for physical experimentation with insatiable curiosity. Then there is only one step between discovery and desire, the need to share it with the rest of the world, and, consequently to bear witness to it through photography. Ever since, my life has been lived between war and peace, along the roads of the world.

@Regranned from @thephotosociety - Photo by @rezaphotography #Egypt, Nile Delta. // The traditional growing of grain (wheat, corn, rice) is a millennial one in Egypt and exists alongside cash crops (such as sugar cane and cotton mostly), thanks to an irrigation system independent from the seasonal flooding of the Nile.

I was on assignment on the Nile Delta for National Geographic Magazine.

I spent hours under an overpowering sun, observing the silent dance of the workers reaping the wheat, making heavy sheaves to be stored. One could only hear the scraping sounds of the ears of wheat turned golden, giving a certain rhythm to their work.

Here, the farmers’ hands were steadily cutting the stalks.

There, an Egyptian peasant was harvesting a field of grain with a sickle.

The noble strength of these hard-working farmers has always inspired me deep respect.

They are taking care of our land, of our home.

The prayer

#Jerusalem, Dome of the Rock,

Sometimes, being a man, moreover a photographer, can close certain doors. The road of discretion was long to introduce me to some sanctuaries usually reserved for women.

A woman is praying under the Dome of the Rock, a sacred place of Islam where the Al-Aqsa mosque also stands.
This reportage on the Myths of the Bible made for National Geographic is part of a long term project about the three monotheist religions, on the path of Abraham, the founding father of Judaism, a key figure of Christianity and one of the five great prophets of Islam.

This story was published in National Geographic Magazine.

I Have a Dream of Humanity
How many years have I lived like this, a wandering witness to violence and upheaval? Constantly on the qui vive, my camera bag permanently packed, ready to head out into the field.
At the time, life seemed like one long balancing act, on a tightrope between life and death, good and evil, driven by one purpose: to bear witness. How does one then return to “normal,” unscathed by the horrors one has witnessed? How does one make room in one’s soul for all the unbearable sights, torn bodies, stolen childhoods, glances brimming with burden, which are burned indelibly into one’s visual memory? I first found solace in the poetry. Then, my inner peace took root in the legitimacy of my role as a witness, governed by two values: my professional code of ethics as a journalist, and the morality which led me, sometimes, to choose to help people rather than “get the picture”. There is also a period you pass through where you feel you only are truly alive when you’re at the heart of an event, when you get there before the other photographers do. It comes down to a difference like that between a speed race and one of endurance.
Over the years, I have felt the intellectual need to use my images to explain how, why, to show the “moment” of the conflict, but also its consequences, the aftermath. At heart, I remain a war correspondent, but I’ve come to care a great deal about being there when the suffering of the victims is no longer under the bright lights and headlines of current events, which devours and then passes on to the next event. I have worked tirelessly to show war through images, in empathy with those caught in its turmoil, whose dreams consistently remain those of a world at peace.

Who are the Sufi? ​Since years, I witnessed all around the world sufi communities in their mystical gathering in the name of God.
The recent tragic events remind ​me this picture and this moment... As the sun makes its slow arc over Cairo, the level of noise grows louder. Every single neighborhood is crowded with people, some loitering or moving with relaxed nonchalance, others frantically hurrying. The city is packed so densely that squatters have taken over the cemeteries on the city’s eastern edge. ​I​n the City of the Dead, they have erected homes and shops among the tombs, amid the indifferent silence of the deceased. Although they are asserting the rights of the living, they show consideration for the tombs, living in respectful cohabitation with the dead. By nightfall, the city becomes fully alive, particularly during the mulids, the merry and noisy celebrations in honor of a saint.
While walking at night, I make out the sound of some drums. The percussive instruments are marking a regular and frantic rhythm. Somewhere in the maze of dark alleys, some Sufis must be playing. I can hear their voices now, low and bursting forth from the depths of their bodies and souls. There they are, wearing their long, white tunics, which stand out against the red decorations for the mulid. Their heads move in harmony with the music. Their faces are covered with sweat. Their eyes close. They go into a trance. From the whirling dervishes in Turkey to the ritual dancers in Africa, worshippers often enter into a state of rapture to commune with God. As they dance, the men chant, reciting poems by the 13th-century Persian poet Rumi. In the early morning, as the Cairo muezzins call the faithful to prayer, the dervishes strike their drums one last time. The men turn inward, exhausted after the divine drunkenness of the long hours of the night.

One day Massoud was laughing, so I asked why. He answered, "because the first time the Russian Army attacked us, I knew only one trick to stop them., and I used it and we won. The next time they entered the valley, I used the same trick, and again I beat them. I uset it seven or eight times, but they never learned." -Reza Deghati @rezaphotography #rezadeghati #massoud #massoudgram #ahmadshahmassoud #احمدشاه_مسعود

The silence of winter.
Travelling all around the world, covering conflicts most of the time, I rarely had the chance to cover France since my arrival decades ago. Of course, I have thousands of pictures of Paris in black and white during the first years, then in colors, after the transition to digital . That year, my mission was a photographic « promenade » in the South of France through the seasons, for a National Geographic book. It was a privilege, an invitation to tell a visual story through my images, between poetry and photojournalism.

Feeling home.
On the roads of the world, the unexpected halts have the taste of distant home. Surrounded by landscape, the smell of the fire boiling the water in the samovar brings you back home. The warm welcome you feel when someone is preparing with attention a cup of tea, is a gift to keep you on the road, again and again.

A woman cooks bread in a traditional clay oven in her home in the Khinalig Village. The northern village is referred to as “an island in the mountain” since is the highest and most remote village in Azerbaijan, located on a summit in the Caucasus Mountains. The village dates back at least 5,000 years and has remained virtually unchanged. The population of approximately 1,200 people belongs to the Kettidt minority. They continue to preserve their unique language (Kettish) and way of life and believe that they are the descendants of Noah. #tradition #bread #cuisine #cooking #woman #colors #hoven #line #circle #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza#rezaphoto #rezadeghati​ #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist​#webistan #رضادقتى #عكاس@thephotosociety

International Children’s day. November, 20.
Childhood Dream On the first day, your senses awaken one by one. The light is so harsh that you keep your eyes tightly closed on your inner night, and you hear muffled sounds from far away. The melee of arms carrying the child helps bandage the wound of separation. The air tears open your lungs; human breath caresses your skin. Every moment of the beginning of your life is a dare, a new discovery.

The breeze flaps the window open onto a new world; the curtains part.

It is daybreak.

Far from the violences of war or those suffered in the intimacy of home, far from the fears and perversions of which so many children are sometimes victims or objects.

Deep inside, every child should only keep the powerfully luminous image of the warmth and carefreeness of those years.

This is the fundamental right of every child. It is what whe have to fight for, every single day. #girl #child #smile #smiling #tradition #horse #childhood #dream #carousel #worldchildrensday #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza#rezaphoto #rezadeghati​ #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist​#webistan #رضادقتى #عكاس@thephotosociety Text by Rachel Deghati

The sacred moment
I said what about my eyes? «Keep them on the road.» I said what about my passion? «Keep it burning.» I said what about my heart? «Tell me what you hold inside it.» I said «Pain and sorrow.» He said «Stay with it.» Rûmi, Sufi poet (13the century)

I was at the the World Festival of Sacred Music in Fez, Morocco. The whirling dervishes from Konya in Turkey, all clothed in white, took their places on the stage. It was a moment suspended in time. They began their staged choreography, then some of these men, turned towards the divine, quietly entered into a state of trance, called Sema. As they spun in a dance which seemed unending, letting their arms flow outward, their gowns unfolded gracefully like flowers around their bodies, the central axis around which they spun, like so many human tops. Their heads bowed, they seemed exhilarated, emanating a sense of lightness and immense liberty. While pictorial and visual representation is a universal language, music – even a few notes, a gentle breath blown into a ney made of reeds – like dance, is a means of communicating with the soul. My attempt to capture this feeling is an homage to these elemental arts.

International Day of Tolerance

A Window on the World

Caucasus Mountains, Khinalig Village, Guba, #Azerbaijan.

Behold the immensity before you, how its untrammeled diversity draws you to the horizon. Rejoice because you cannot embrace so much beauty in just one life. See yourself in the eyes of whomever mirrors your reflection.

Phrase de Gandhi présentée à la presse par le photographe humaniste REZA le 27/11/2017. #rezadeghati #webistan #webistagram #apple @apple @followflo

As a violent earthquake hit the city of Halabjah, east of Erbil, and Kermanshah and Sar e Pol e Zahab and vast area in Iran and Iraq Kurdistan. All my sincere thoughts with family’s of victims. I think of the suffering of the victims.
This reminds me the sorrow of the survivors of an other earthquake that brings me in 1999, in Turkey, along the Anatolian fault. Their house was destroyed by the violence of the eartquake. As displaced people in a camp, the children were cuddled up close to their father, the warm light of a fire on their faces.

Regional government of Iraqi Kurdistan, Shingal (Kurdish; Arabic: Sinjar). Naser Pasha Khalaf, Director of Public Relations and Culture of the KDP (Kurdistan Democratic Party) in Shingal and its surrounding area, stands in front of one of the former fish farms of Shingal. This area, discovered after the town’s liberation on November 13th, 2015, was used by ISIS troops as one of twenty mass gravesites. Survivors recount that, when ISIS attacked the town, men, women and children were separated. The women were brought to this building and divided into two groups. The group of young women was taken away by ISIS troops while the older women were killed and dumped in a mass grave. Because of the rain, the ground got wet and bones began to emerge from the earth.
Yes, I have witnessed human suffering and turmoil more than you can imagine, yet there are the moments of joy and beauty of human soul that give me the faith in the future of Humanity, the joy of liberation is one of those privilege moments besides its very terrible realities... #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #​رضادقتى#​ عكاس @thephotosociety #freedom #liberation #kurd #kurdistan #kurdish #peshmergas #fighters #yezidi #witness #humanity #future #sinjar #shingal #fight #destroyed #joy #happiness #hope #war

“REZA WAR+PEACE”
As a child in Tabriz, my parents used to whisper to their children the poetry and tales of wisdom and love for freedom and justice.
For almost 40 years now, I have been using my camera as a tool to bear witness.

What a treat in photography class @rezaphotography made a special appearance and shared some of his most personal photo stories. Thank you Reza! #rezadeghati #nationalgeographic #photography #storytelling #iaia #santafe #newmexico #letmetakeaselfie

#reza in the house

Finally got my copy of "Reza War + Peace: A Photographer's Journey"

@rezaphotography has always been my inspiration. I first saw him and his works on Nat Geo channel, in which his Afghan documentary was broadcasted. Since then, I followed him on facebook and here on Instagram as well.

His pictures, accompanied by a narrative captioning, describing the context of the pictures are a chicken soup for the soul. I wished him more success and a fruitful life.

Freedom to explore

Small children has involved awakening sessions in painting at Lumiar school.

In Brazil, Lumiar schools offer a new kind of educational methods, similar to the Montessori approach, splitting traditional teaching in two separate roles: the mentor and the master. Knowledge and skills are transmitted in a new way thanks to innovative school place ergonomics, tailor-made projects and the students’ involvement in the thinking and decision-making about their own learning.

Preservation

#UnitedStates, #California, #sanfrancisco
A long term photographic project through the world on different educational initiatives. I witnessed the work of two CYES specialists completing the analysis of a home to provide sustainable solutions to reduce the energy loss.

Each summer, in eight Californian towns, the Rising Sun Energy Center trains around 85 young people aged from 15 to 22, often from underprivileged backgrounds, to energy efficiency and environmental protection jobs.
