Return to Kurdistan shows Iraqi Kurdistan and Northern Iraq in photographs by Richard Wilding alongside historical photographs by Anthony Kersting.
Richard Wilding’s photographs explore the region’s ancient civilisation, its religious and ethnic diversity, history of persecution and renewal, and the current refugee crisis.
Anthony Kersting’s photographs from the 1940s form an important record of the region’s minorities and historical sites that have recently been damaged or destroyed.
