Covid 19

In January 2021, I traveled to Kish Island for photography, Kish was in a yellow position compared to Covid-19.

Many people from different parts of Iran traveled to Kish Island and after long-term quarantine were able to enjoy of concerts and good weather in Kish.

After obtaining a license and going through various stages, I was able to find my photography license from military restrictions and forbidden areas in Kish.

Includes fishermen’s harbor and harbor and dock and the palaces of Reza Shah in the Pahlavi era as well as historical monuments in Kish.

Part of my photography in Safin is a small village in the Kish region of Bandar Lengeh city in Hormozgan province, which is located in southern Iran, where most Arabs live.

Its population is about 1200 people. Having a mosque, the residents of this village are mostly Arabs and Sunnis from the Hanbali branch, that is, they are followers of Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal. But other Iranian tribes also live in this neighborhood.

The villagers make a living by hunting, fishing and trading.

This is my second time photographing in this area, and on a trip to the front I met a little girl who met her father on the street. She was very beautiful and charming, but her father allowed me to take a picture.

Most Arabs in the southern regions of Iran forbid photography according to their religion.

And escape in front of the camera as much as they can.

So, I try to continue taking pictures by talking or in some other way. On this trip, I met Fatemeh again. Her father allowed me to take pictures this time.

_ Most of the people and fishermen in this wharf are from Pakistan and India and only have work visas. In fact, they are required to work and live only in the wharf area.

They were surprised to see a woman at the pier because no female photographers have come here so far and they also say no covid-19 has been found.

We had a good time and I was able to watch and photograph their way of life and work.

They are very hardworking and are fishing and cleaning fish under the bright sunlight. They are often young and seem to be satisfied with their presence in this area.

 

_ Photography in home quarantine for 90 days and after 90 days of quarantine, photography in the city of Mazandaran _ April and May 2020

In late February, when I returned from a trip to Yangon Photo Festival, the Coronavirus (Covid 19) had spread in Iran. I stayed in my house in Tehran for two weeks in quarantine, and two weeks later I went to my mother’s house in northern Iran.
These photos are the result of 90 days in quarantine. A thousand-meter house where we could only spend days. My family was reunited with my nieces and nephews. It was hard work to quarantine and take care of the children.
So I started playing with them and asked them to act like actors in theater scenes, and I took pictures.
The children spent the days without entertainment or watching TV during these ninety days.
My two brothers had to go to work because the quarantine was not officially announced by the government.
My nephew has a respiratory problem and should be kept away from colds and any illness. He was last admitted to the ICU.
Therefore, he did not see his child for two months so that he would not be a carrier of the disease and pass it on to his child. My brother (Hossein) lies in front of the TV every night after work and sleeps, wakes up and watches the TV in a hurry and falls asleep again with fatigue and discomfort.
After ninety days, I witnessed the confusion of my family and their mental fatigue. It was as if they had no future after Corona!
I decided to go around the northern city by bike or car,
And it was interesting that people were camping around and enjoying themselves, while the death toll from the Coronavirus (Covid_19) was very high per day.
The second part of my photography is after ninety days of quarantine that you see.
