Since childhood, the Middle East awakened an immense curiosity in me.

First, from literature and film. Novels, stories, history and travel logs made me plunge into distant lands.

Later, photography. The obvious need to be a witness and capture realities, to be involved in the everyday, always stopping in the human factor.

Middle East is engaging, mysterious, magical. The condiments remain: cradle of civilizations, diversity of peoples, life in the desert, unresolved conflicts and Islam, always present.

Iran is one of the most important and influential countries in the region and its image is associated with the Revolution, but also with the hospitality of its people.

I want to return soon to continue discovering and learning more about Iran and its people.
