The Day of Tasu'a by Eric Lafforgue

Themed Collections

18 September 2018

Posted by Philip Mowbray

The day of Tasu’a (literally meaning ‘nine’) is the 9th day of Muharram (the first month of the Islamic calendar) and the day before Ashura. It is commemorated by Shia Muslims in Iran to mourn the martyrdom of Hadrat Abbas and Imam Hussain: the prophet Muhammad’s grandsons.

The day is marked in Shia communities with ceremonies of mourning, which include processions, chanting and self-flagellation. This year, that day falls on Wednesday, 19th September and you can read more about Tasu’a day here.

Picfair photographer and renowned world-traveller, Eric Lafforgue provides us with a fascinating and rarely-glimpsed insight on Tasu’a day celebrations with his photographic series made in the Lorestan Province or Iran. We've selected some of our highlights below, and you can see more of Eric's remarkable work in his Picfair portfolio here.
