Beautiful Iran, Charming PersianFive years ago, when I paid my first visit to the mysterious country of Iran, I was fascinated by the ancient cultural symbols and the splendid light and shadows on the streets. The cities I walked through and the Persians I met seemed to have the illusion of being transported through time and space. I used my lens to capture the daily life of people in the streets, recording the real and timeless scenes of Islamic people, and try to create images with a personalized visual effect.
