"Bawi family from Olve village harvests date palms during the harvesting season.
According to Abo Ali Bawi, father of the family, "the fruit of many palm trees has been halved this year due to water crisis. Many streams in the town have dried up. The palms had to be watered at least ten times a year, but the family only watered them three times this year due to water shortages and drought. Although the village of Oluh is located near the Karun River, due to the high cost of renting a water pump to transfer water from the Karun River, many farmers do not have the revenue to do so. The Covid-19 outbreak reduced Iran's date fruit exports by about 70 per cent because of closed borders and a global decline in demand. On top of the pandemic, local palm date farmers' situation has worsened this year as the worst drought has hit the country in 50 years while several areas reported protests over water shortages."

She is a grantee of the Magnum Foundation, National Geographic Society, and a member of Women Photograph and Diversify Photo. Her work is mainly known for exploring the themes of climate change, water crisis, focusing on humans and their relationships with the environment, communities, and cultures. Since the beginning of her career, she has created several journalistic works over extended periods to understand human behavior and ideas in their social, cultural, religious, and political context. The subjects she has worked on overlap with sociology, human geography and are closely linked to the environment.


All profits from the print sale will go to EMERGENCY's crucial work in Afghanistan. Donations will fund specialist training of local nurses & doctors, who will go on to treat thousands of patients in need across the country. On the 15th of August 2021, Afghanistan fell to the Taliban. One year later the world’s attention has moved on. However the situation in Afghanistan is getting worse and worse. Faced with economic sanctions, severe drought, the cumulative toll of decades of war and renewed violence, the role EMERGENCY plays in Afghanistan is more critical than ever.

“My message is urgent: Don’t shut the door on the people of Afghanistan" Martin Griffiths, the U.N.’s emergency aid coordinator.
