I’ve partnered with UNHCR numerous times since 2016 to document their work across Iraq. From covering the humanitarian crisis surrounding the battle for Mosul and UNHCR’s response to it to job training programs, situations faced by internally displace Iraqis, and celebrity visits. These are a few select images from that work.
