Who took the photo: An English missioner
The photo was taken in sulaimanya area when Shekh Mahmod was fighting the English, if you look at the man on the left side he is wearing a western jacket which indicates that the fighter was clearing after dead english soliders. the Turks didnt wear this kind of jackets the Kurds were not making them. im sure of what i said.

Who took the photo: A photographer !:)
I have analyzed this pic over and over through some utilties that I have and based on the archived info and pics that I have , this pic was taken in the southren part of Turkey ,They are difinitly Kurds which is obvious from their clothes ,Material designs and the Head cover . The houses in the background and the are kurdish too based on the fact that such designs still exist in Sivas and kangal.This pic is definitly no war related ,it could be wedding or a race or something of that sort.

Who took the photo: I cannot make any comments as to who might have taken the pictu
I had a very educated friend analyze this picture with me. He suggested that judging from the scarfs of the soldiers, it looks like these were soldiers from Suleimania area and maybe even Eastern Kurdista. The type of scarfs are black and they have "reshy" or strips on them coming down their faces. These types of scarfs were famously worn by people in that area. In addition, the soldiers are wearing different type of vests which suggests that these soldiers are from different regions. Some of them are wearing vests with high shoulders.
Who took the photo: Kurdish Photographer
Probably in Harran(a small town located in southern-east of turkey, near to the city Urfa. Maybe taken before going to battlefield. We can say that this may be battlefield against French attackers.

Maybe these people are kurdish if so.. after the kurds running away from there homes they ran to the mountains and had no jobs or anything to do so they ganged up and made klans to hijack and steal peoples villages and goods..

Who took the photo: Some Foeign Photographer or Missioner
I don't know anything about the history of the photo. But If we look at the face of the persons, they're more like Kurdish faces of Northern Kurdistan. And I think that The photo is taken by a foreign photographer or christian missioner, because it's rarely known that there have been some Kurdish photographers at that time(beg. of 20th century). It could be a marriage feast when Kurds are going to show their bravery and Cavalry and knighthood.

Who took the photo: Very likely English, maybe French
Kurdish: Well-dressed for battle, most likely against the Turkish Republic for an Independent Kurdistan, probably one of the first Kurdo-Turkik wars.

Ozturk, MBA student
Who took the photo: I think it is taken by a Kurdish photographer
I think it is taken by a Kurdish photographer who wanted to take a picture before these people went to the battlefield. I don't think that these people are heads of the tribes. Because they wouldnt risk their leaders and it would also be impossible to collect so much leaders. That would mean that there are a lot of tribes located close to each other, and this is not likeley. I also think it is taken in the larger cities of Turkish Kurdistan. If you look at the buildings at the back, in those times these would only appear in the larger cities.
Who is in the photo: shike said and his group

Harran is the the northest point of the arabian world. two nations share that region( arab&kurdish tribes) where some ZAZA tribes had been accommodated at that region by Ottoman forces. Harran tribes usually worked against Ottoman being beside their relative from the same tribes in the syrian land( ALEPPO & EZAZ). Those in photo mostly are a group of revolutionist against the French occupation in HARRAN region.

Who took the photo: It could of been a German or a Turk
In all honesty, from what I know, I saw this photo in one of the Armenian genocide books. These Kurdish tribesmen with the Ottoman Turkish army were ready to charge at Russian and Armenian forces. These guys agreed with the CUP, (Committee of Union and Progress).
In my believe, these guys were naive, this is just my opinion. :-)
George, it's confidential
Who took the photo: probably some journalist
It looks like the heads of tribe from the Butan region of Kurdistan possing for an image...most likely are heads of tribe or top heads of one tribe
