Street Photography

Atabak neighborhood, Tehran
February 2021
I never plan street photography.
I pick up my camera and step into the unknown, attracted to people and places which are totally unfamiliar to me.
I had heard Atabak was an area notorious for its open drug trade and was warned it would be dangerous for me to enter this neighborhood, especially with a camera. I chose to ignore what people said and went. After staring at me in disbelief, most people then smiled.
People in this area admired Qassem Soleimani, many have hung a picture of him in their shops and walls are marked with “Great Revenge is Ahead”

_The people of this area are very interested in the commander of the corps, Qassem Soleimani, and the words “Great revenge is ahead” are written on the walls of the neighborhood, and they hung a picture of him on the wall of their shop.
