Hadani Ditmars

Author, journalist, and photographer Hadani Ditmars has reported from Lebanon, Israel/Palestine, and Iraq, often examining the human costs of sectarian strife as well as cultural resistance to war, occupation and embargo.

Hadani is a former editor at New Internationalist magazine and last travelled to Baghdad in 2010 to write and photograph the May 2010 issue Iraq, 7 years later, the legacy of invasion.

Her best selling book Dancing in the No Fly Zone (chosen by the Globe and Mail as one of 100 best and most influential books of 2005) recounts her time in Iraq from 1997 until the fall of 2003 and is one of the few books on the troubled nation that covers pre and post invasion reality.
