He has done intimate work on the plight of the Yazidis after their expulsion by ISIS and more recently has produced some of the most important evidence of war crimes in the past 30 years while covering Iraqi forces in the battles for Mosul. He portrays humanitarian conditions and conflicts that Iraq has gone through with sensitivity and an unflinching eye. Ali chose to cover the deteriorating situations of people in his country following the regime change of 2003. This year he won the prestigious Bayeux Prize for War Correspondents and had his work shown as part of the Venice Biennale.
