INTERVIEW WITH SOLMAZ DARYANI
Winner of the 2021 W Award
by SVETLANA BACHEVANOVA
Since 2014, you have been working on a personal story about how the death and revival of Lake Urmia has had consequences on the area and on your family, whose livelihood depended on to the lake. What have you documented?
I documented the impact of the shrinking lake on the people, their livelihoods and the environment around the lake.
THE EYES OF EARTH BY SOLMAZ DARYANI
THE EYES OF EARTH tells a deeply personal story about the environmental disaster at Lake Urmia as seen through the eyes of Solmaz Daryani, a self-taught photographer, who grew up on the lake.
The book contains 128 pages, 50 color photograph and 12 images from the Daryani's family archive.
“In 10 years FotoEvidence has done some incredible work to make a very significant impact. We can use what we've learned to accelerate change and engage more broadly. Taking the picture is only the first step. It's not enough just to shine the light, we have to get these images in front of the right eyes.”
Taking up the board member for the FotoEvidence Association allows Bouckaert to continue to agitate for change, and to be involved in visual storytelling which he believes is crucial to affecting change
