A riot of color

Politics plays with words, images and ideas, tossing about the known and the imagined as if they were one. Art does too.

I have my own words and ideas about Iran, but here I want these images—snapshots in time of what I have seen in this vast and beautiful land—to convey the feeling I have in my heart.

Absolutely brilliant show!!! And thank you for it. Very well done, indeed. Far too beautiful a country for the machinations of politics and the military. Again, thank you!

Your audio slideshow is really very inspiring and beautiful. I love the transition from black&white photographs to full colour. The turntable style music abruptly ending to make way for contemporary music really does give the sense that this is the Iran you never see on television or read about in newspapers. The message of this is so powerful. You can see how deeply immersed you are in the subjects and landscapes you photograph. You are not simply the observer. You are completely touched by what you see and hear and feel. It's similar to the affect The Kite Runner had on me and how it shifted how I view Afghanistan and its people. The world needs artists like yourself to take people by the hand and show them what the mass media fail to show... that is, the true face of these countries and that despite how people feel towards cultures and religions different to their own, we are all one.
