Life through photos in Iran.

I found this site: http://www.iranian.com/Arts/2004/August/Dress/index.html through "Allah". It is a photo essay on dress. There is a brief intro by the compiler and this interesting experience is worth highlighting:

~~Once I made pictures on the Tehran bazaar, suddenly an unknown man appeared beside and while we were walking he whispered quickley in my ear: 'Try to make pictures of the young people, try to show their sadness in the deepth of their heart, try to show it on your pictures!" Then he quickley turned left and disappeared.

There was no time for me to tell him, that I already had done this.~~

There are 50 photos and to see each one, you have to click the next button on the screen.

The other site that I want you to see is: http://bia2.com which is "Home of the Proud Persians". There are photos in this too. To see them, go to the hidden camera or to the picture link. In the hidden camera, #7 & 8 are especially enlighting because they focus on driving.

Wow, interesting pictures. Any idea on how to help somebody get out of Iran and come to the United States?

If so, let me know: zamazur@yahoo.com

I have no idea, but on the persian forum that I sometimes visit, most have come to the US and only a few remain in Iran. If you would like to see it, go to http://acitivistchat.com and click on the "join the debate" button or any of the links on the right hand side.
