In 1997, we collaborated with photojournalist Susan Meiselas to create a virtual archive for Kurdish people around the world. Without a recognized homeland Kurds have struggled to maintain their cultural identity. akaKURDISTAN.org accompanies Susan’s book KURDISTAN and is a place to share, archive, and discuss the artifacts and personal stories from the Kurdish diaspora. One of the most interesting features is the ‘Unknown Image Archive’ where people can post photographs and contribute information about each image. It has been fascinating to see how much discrepancy, voiced with such authority, there is in almost every case.
