    Iraq through the Fall

    One woman stood outside a mosque, asking “Can I go in?”. She did not know what lay behind those doors, but as she was ushered into a stark room, she saw two women bathing the body of a 12-year-old girl in preparation for her burial. Behind this photo, and others capturing the Iraq invasion between February and April 2003, is the late French photojournalist Alexandra Boulat (1962–2007), who after studying graphic art in Paris, packed a camera bag for the Balkans and never looked back.

    Assignments in Croatia, Kosovo and Bosnia during the 1990s would pave the way for her photojournalism career, and largely influenced by her father, LIFE photographer Pierre Boulat, Alexandra is today celebrated for her award-winning photos of conflict and women in Iraq, Afghanistan and Gaza.

    ASIAN Geographic pays tribute to this fearless photojournalist and documentary photographer – who through this series of photos, taken before, during and after the Iraq invasion of March 2003 – shows us the triumphs and tears of war.
