Tamara Chalabi,Morad Montazami con Latif al Ani

Reseña del editor Latif al Ani (born 1932, Baghdad) is known as the father of Iraqi photography. He was the first to capture cosmopolitan life in Iraq from the 1950s to the '70s. His black and white images represent a unique visual archive of the country during its 20th-century heyday. Al Ani photographed Iraq's vibrant culture in all its abundance and complexity; as well as documenting the country's westernised everyday life, political culture and industry, he also captured images of Iraq from the air for a British-owned oil company. Later, under Saddam Hussein's oppressive regime, Al Ani ceased photographing. For a long time, nothing was heard of the artist. Today, his images provide testimony of an era long gone. In 2015 Al Ani was presented with the Prince Claus Award, given annually by the Dutch Royal Family. In the same year he exhibited his work at the Venice Biennale in the Iraq Pavilion. This widely praised exhibition focused on works from the early period of his career and showed how Al Ani saw his country jump impatiently towards modernity while at the same time holding on to its traditions. The publication is introduced by an interview with Latif al Ani by Tamara Chalabi, the president of the Ruya Foundation in Iraq. It also contains an essay by Iranian Morad Montazami, curator of Middle Eastern Art at Tate Modern, London. Montazami puts Al Ani's work into the broader context of the modernisation of Iraq, as well as the architecture, archaeology and the development of photography and visual culture in the country. Nota de la solapa Fotograaf Latif al Ani (°1932, Bagdad) is de vader van de Iraakse fotografie. Hij was de eerste die het kosmopolitische leven van het bloeiende Irak van de jaren 1950 tot 1970 vastlegde in beeld. Zijn unieke zwart-witfoto's vormen het visuele geheugen van een land tijdens zijn gouden jaren. Al Ani toonde de levendige Iraakse cultuur in al zijn overdaad en complexiteit. Hij documenteerde het steeds westerser wordende alledaagse leven, de politieke cultuur en de industrie en maakte luchtfoto's van Bagdad in opdracht van een Britse oliemaatschappij. Onder het onderdrukkende regime van Saddam Hoessein werd Al Ani verplicht te stoppen met fotograferen en lange tijd bleef het stil rond de kunstenaar. Ver Descripción del producto
