More than a Window
Windows are more than what we can imagine, they hold layers of images—my goal was to combine those layers in one photograph.

When you pass by a store or a window of a home, or even when you look at car windows, the first thing you look for are objects behind the glass. Walking around a city like Tehran, you could see a combination of reflections on the glass and a movement behind the glass.
When you encircled by architectural spaces, you will find a combination of forms and patterns all over the space drown into a shadow. In fact, that was my main goal in this project, to capture a combination of two spaces. One, the fixed world, behind the glass and the second was the flow or movement of the city in front of it.
|Chogha Zanbil, Khuzestan, Iran|
“Dur Untash” is the name of a photography collection that has captured a different view of the old ancient city of Dur Untash and the famous complex of “Chogha Zanbil.” Chogha Zanbil complex was built about 1250 BC by the king “Untash Gal” mainly to honour the great God “Inshushinak,” the keeper and guardian of the ancient city of Susa. The minimal look of this project is a way to create new forms, using shadows and combining them with the remaining structures of this great ruin.
A Visit to Khuzestan
|Abadan and Shadegan Wildlife Refuge, Khuzestan, Iran|
Khuzestan is one of the most beautiful regions in the south of Iran and borders Iraq and the Persian Gulf. It is composed of several different cities that have their own unique quality. These photos from Abadan and Shadegan Wildlife Refuge are a small example of this historical province.
Warm weather, warm colours and warm-hearted people were my reasons to travel to southern Iran. After the 1979 revolution, people in these areas engaged in eight years of war and had experienced a lot of ups and downs.
