“Since January 2014, Iraq’s war against ISIS has displaced over a tenth of the country’s population. One and a half million Iraqis have fled to the relative safety of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.

Map of Displacement is the story of these civilians—irrespective of their religion or ethnicity—who have become caught in the crossfire and have been forced to flee their homes. It is these men, women, and children who are the true victims of this intractable conflict.

Map of Displacement is the account of the current crisis of displacement inside the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. It is the story of the enormous human toll civilians are paying in Iraq while war continues to ravage their country. Through intimate narratives of these people who have been violently forced to flee, Map of Displacement illustrates the magnitude and poignancy of this underreported crisis.

The twelve stories presented here are the result of collaborations between the Kurdish Iraqi photographers of Metrography, Metrography’s editorial team and writers from all over the world. These accounts establish a visual and narrative record of the events that are shaking the very foundations of Iraq.

Map of Displacement is a project curated by Stefano Carini and Dario Bosio.”
