"a family's loss"
A family of villagers, in the midst of the ruins of what used to be their home, cry out for their grandmother still buried under the rubble. On June 23, 2002 a 6.0 magnitude earthquake struck the Ghazvin Province of Iran 300 miles from the capital Tehran. Dozens of villages were completely destroyed killing hundreds and devastating the lives of thousands of Iranians. This series of photos are from the village of Changooreh the day of the earthquake and also the day after. Approximately one hundred villagers died in this one village.
