EPISODE 5: VANISHING LANDS
The fifth episode of Foam Talks welcomes Iranian photographer Hashem Shakeri. The starting point of the conversation is Shakeri’s project An Elegy for the Death of Hamun. For this, he has travelled from north to south of the Iranian province of Sistan and Baluchestan to document the water shortage and drought, and the subsequent famine, unemployment and depopulation it has caused.
