About The Artwork

The Nimrud Portfolio Limited edition A pastoral Nineveh landscape on the banks of the river Tigris, close to the antiquity site of Nimrud. Nimrud was a major Assyrian city flourishing from 1250BC - 610BC. Archaeological excavations at the site began in 1845, and have continued since. Agatha Christie lived at Nimrud in the 1940s-50s, accompanying her husband Max Mallowan who led a British School of Archaeology team. In 1988, Iraqi archaeologist Muzahem Mahmoud made Iraq's discovery of the century by unearthing over 600 precious pieces of gold jewelry and precious stones under the floor of the Royal Palace at Nimrud, now considered to be Iraq's "Crown Jewels". Nimrud, a UNESCO World Heritage site, was bulldozed and demolished by explosives by the Islamic State in March 2015, along with Hatra and Khorsabad. Artifacts and monuments from Nimrud are scattered in over 50 museums around the world.

Barry Iverson is a former photographer for TIME Magazine. His work has also been published in such wide-ranging publications as National Geographic, New York Times, Life, People, Geo, Paris Match and Stern. In 1985, he won a Fulbright Fellowship to research the history of photography in Egypt, and concurrently taught photography at the American University in Cairo. He has produced several fine art portfolios, including Egyptian Desert Views I & II, Cairo I & II, Sand & Stone, Comparative Views of Harvard, Comparative Views of Egypt, Aged, The Cinders of Gawhara Palace, Tahrir Square 2011 and The Tour. His work is represented by the LIFE Gallery, Townhouse Gallery and Sultan Gallery, and held in several public and private collections. Iverson published Comparative Views of Egypt (1994), and Egypt 1900: The View Through Postcards (1993), and written the biographies of photographers Van Leo, Riad Chehata, and researched the Hunt/Baker photographic partnership, the latter duo being the first Americans to photograph Egypt. It was his research and study of 19th & 20th century photography and the early works of photographers like Frith, Greene, Du Camp, Hunt/Baker as well as the documentary work of Walker Evans which influenced Iverson's own vision and style. The desert landscape has been of particular interest to him for many years. He shot in large format 8x10inch for much of his early documentary work along with other film and digital formats. His latest body of work "The Tour" is a fictional narrative series shaped by photographic history, documentary work and cinematic influences. He continues to pursue his fine art work, as well as editorial and commercial commissions.
