WE ABIDED BY THE LOVE
From Personal Documents Series
Myths are created to remind us of the inadequacies of their time. Love is a major subject of myths and literature in our culture.
Romance has always been praised in Iranian culture, but it has also been accompanied by concealment and a kind of shame which has prevented frankness and led to censorship and cover-ups.
Hence pictures depicting love are meant to be kept hidden, especially when the love is earthly and material, not abstract and spiritual. My life is all reality of life itself; my work is a document based on my decisive presence and no one else’s; love, a flip to the forgotten, slumbering society.
