Would you move from Scotland to Northern Iraq?

Would you move from Scotland to Northern Iraq?

Sam Finch, 23

Two years ago my older brother decided to pack his bags and move to Iraqi Kurdistan; this decision had always intrigued me and the only way I could truly understand this move was to visit him.

Photographing his new life in Kurdistan has been very meaningful to me; I experienced the incredible warmth of the locals, the beautiful landscape and inspiring school in which he works, most importantly I could see what drew him to this often misunderstood, misrepresented part of the world. I was so inspired to see the connections he had made with the children he teaches and how excited they were to have an enthusiastic native English speaker in the school.
