June 2015 - The center of Sulaymaniyah in northeastern Iraqi Kurdistan. Chinese investors started to build up this region after Saddam Hussein lost power, but after the problems with Daesh (aka ISIS), almost all the investors have left.
For its eighth Instagram take-over by photographers from around the world, Carnegie Council presents work by Troy Enekvist, a Swedish freelance photojournalist who currently works for the Swedish newspaper Sundsvalls Tidning.
He has worked mainly in the Middle East and Africa and is interested in using photography to tell people's stories.
In June of 2015, Enekvist reported from Iraq, where he shot a series of photographs documenting life in Kurdistan and the impact Daesh, or ISIS, has on daily life. More of his work can be viewed at www.troyenekvist.com.
Carnegie Council hosts a new Instagram take-over every month. Check out the previous photographers and look for the next one in early August:https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/ccthrumyeyes/.
