I SUFFER BUT I AM
By early 2020 the world was sinking into uncertainty.
People quarantined in their homes to stay safe but financial pressure was building up.
Despite the risks, some had to work to support their families, yet still managed a smile.
Qeshm Island, Iran
I set off to Southern Iran, planning to write a travelogue and visited several villages.
This collection of “Eyes” photos was shot with my friend’s camera.
Most inhabitants of Qeshm are Sunni and consider it Haram to be photographed.
The sun has burnt their faces, but their eyes say so much.
They assumed I was a foreign tourist and were willing to pose for me.
