British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

I am looking for images of Kurdish subjects. I have seen many 19th century photographs, yet none that show specifically Kurdish people or locations. The images can be 19th and 20th century. Many thanks.

Might want to check the book Kurdistan: In the Shadow of History, Second Edition

by the photographer Susan Meiselas

Many thanks Mark for the suggestion. 

I have many postcards from Turkey in the 1920s and 30s including a few that may be Kurdish. Look at my blog, especially these pages:

I'm not interested in selling but if you want some scans for research I'm happy to send some through.
