    We Live Near Death


    A group of Iraqi Youth playing swinger on streets of southern Iraq-Dhi-Qar province, they were pretending happy and not sad or mad about what is facing them and their country daily. They asked me to shoot a pictures of them like that and show it to the  rest of the world specailly to the  American people.


    The message was (We Live Near Death) meaning car explosions and terrorists groups who are attacking us everywhere, in our schools, homes, streets- works but we dont care about death-and will not stop living our lives with all the threats we are facing.
