SHADOWS OF SILENCEI have traveled the Iranian deserts for quite some time. Every time I am on my way back, I am looking forward to return soon. We got to know each other little by little. Something I appreciate about desert’s nature is its silence and awesome magnitude. The persistent drought will not bow to the human presence and the tranquility swallows his need for attention. Its beauty leaves the spectator awestruck. My photographs aim to deliver this sensation.

Since 2000 he has traveled Iran’s nature, urban and rural areas to capture a country in transition.
