A golden age in Baghdad

From the 1950s to the 1970s, during a period of increased cosmopolitanism and openness in the country, Latif Al Ani, known as the founding father of Iraqi photography, was prolific in documenting everyday life in Iraq. Working at Getty Images, I am fortunate to be regularly exposed to the best in world photography and video and the cutting edge of the visual dialogue that frames our world. Why not share! #gettycontest
