Mullah Mustafa Barzani, Norther Iraq, Spring, 1965

Here?s another photo to illustrate tribalism ? a portrait of the
famous Kurdish tribal chief, Mullah Mustafa Barzani, taken when I was
traveling illegally in northern Iraq in 1965. This black and white
version appeared with my six page article in LIFE Magazine the same
year, and it reappears in my recent book, Causes and Spirits, on pages
264-265. Mullah Mustafa died in 1979. The original is in brilliant
color (Kodachrome slide taken with Leica M2), which I could probably
find and scan into my website if anyone is interested (ie, if enough
readers write and ask).  Another picture of Barzani taken by me at the
same time illustrates the current Wikipedia entry on Mustafa Barzani
