Rawsht Twana

Rawsht Twana was born in 1988 in Qaladze, Iraq. He became a photographer in 2006 after discovering his father’s archive, who himself was a photographer before he was killed in 1992. Twana, who has been displaced twice in his life, has focused his work on the impact of conflict and displacement in his home country. In his “What We Share” series, Twana explores the common history, memories and culture that displaced people share, and that which unites them despite their differences. Twana currently lives in Suleymaniye, Iraq with his wife and daughter.
