Iraq’s Eight-year-old Photographer


I became interested in photography towards the end of my primary school years. I would sit in the media centre during several break periods a week and page through the National Geographic magazines that were there admiring the images… and possibly even more so, the camera ads. I took my first “real” pictures on an old Pentax Spotmatic and sold my old 486 PC to buy my first camera, a Canon A1. Even though I had been bitten by the photographic bug I was still a long way off from having the drive of this 8 year. Check it out.
