Latif Al Ani

Text by Morad Montazami.

Featured image is reproduced from 'Latif Al Ani.'

Known as the “father of Iraqi photography,” Latif al Ani (born 1932) was the first photographer to capture cosmopolitan life in 1950s–70s Iraq, and his black-and-white images constitute a unique visual account of the country during its belle époque. Al Ani portrayed Iraq’s culture in all of its abundance and complexity: besides documenting its westernized everyday life, the political culture and industry, he also captured images of Iraq from the air, for the Iraq Petroleum Company. Under Saddam Hussein’s oppressive regime, however, Al Ani ceased photographing.

Today, his photographs give testimony to an era long gone. His exhibition at the Iraq Pavilion during the Venice biennale in 2016 focused on works from the early period of his career, which reveal both Iraq’s modernizing trends and the retention of ancient traditions as particular themes of Al Ani’s work.

It's Nice That

Rebecca Fulleylove

Latif Al Ani has become known as the 'founding father of Iraqi photography' . . . [his] images crystallise the 'golden age' decades of Iraq like no one else has or will ever be able to do again.

Remarkable midcentury photos from the Father of Iraqi Photography

Remarkable midcentury photos from the Father of Iraqi Photography

“The past is mine, not the future. That is for others,” Latif Al Ani is quoted in the remarkable new monograph from Hatje Cantz. “The impact of the images will be more important in the future, as they show a vanished world … It is counterintuitive; things are meant to progress forwards, not backwards. I had a strange incident around 2004, when I went to a kiosk to buy a newspaper. The man told me it had sold out because of a calendar supplement of photographs. I asked him what it was, and he said, I don’t know, some photographs of Baghdad by a man called Ani. I told him, I was the photographer. He was so surprised he kissed me. He asked if Baghdad really was like that? He couldn’t believe it was the same city he lived in. He said: ‘It was so ordered and clean. Why are we like this today?’” Featured image is “Shopping in Baghdad” (1964). continue to blog
