The Collection

Raad shared several photos that span the personal scale and the city scale. The urban photos reflect the change of use of houses that were once sought after because of their central location on main roads. These lost their value after ISIS attacked the city as they became the most vulnerable of all houses and endured a significant amount of damage and later a change of use. A selection of other photographs depicts the material effects of war on the city in the form of a return to old, pre-electricity tools and equipment for storing drink or cleaning the house.
