Rifat Chadirji, the prolific Iraqi architect, author, and educator, is considered as one of the most prominent modern architects in the Arab world. His design output included private residences, government and industrial buildings, and monuments. Also an avid photographer, Chadirji extensively documented his own built projects. His photographic folio is published here for the first time, offering a comprehensive analysis of the development of his architectural practice in Baghdad from 1952 until the early 1980s. It provides unique insight into this collection of images, which also reflects how the architect saw his own work and coded, organized, and referenced his projects with the camera.
