The death of Iran’s ‘Dead Sea’

Iran's Lake Urmia used to be the largest lake in the Middle East. But the salt lake has shrunk by two-thirds since 1997.

According to the United Nations Development Program, the lake has shrunk by two-thirds since 1997 due to Iran’s water crisis and detrimental agricultural policies.

President Hassan Rouhani has pledged $5 billion to fix the problem over the next 10 years, but can this buoyant wetland rebound?

That’s the hope of Meysam Mir Zendehdel, a documentary photographer from Tehran, Iran.

“I believe that it is my duty to show realities and facts, and the judge is up to audiences,” he said.
