A welcomed email today from Karlos Zurutuza, fresh back from exploring Kurdish northern Iraq.
I've admired Karlos' photojournalism in Hidden Europe and we share an interest in the Caucasus. He's a great photographer and has moved into working with slideshows, capturing audio along the way. The de-mining slideshow appears on a Basque website but the interview is in English.
Karlos also got up into the Kandil mountains, made contact with the PKK and remarked he felt safer in northern Iraq than in some parts of Abkhazia.
A second slideshow from Karlos has been added to Argia's multimedia page on Kurdistan.
