Iran is a country with no time. Because the time has left too many signs, and what remains is the stratification: the past, first in Persia, now Iran, is as strong as sentiment and also loved.
The story becomes narration – when even poetry – up to often confused with the experience of the same narrator.
The stories overlap, and the sense of the past that you come across, borders on romance: more than the past “historical”, the narrator ends up falling in love with what for him, intimately, that past is.
Like Scheherazade in person, which tells the clock to save her life.
So we chained to Iran, and Iran holds all chained.
Timeless Persia’ is a photographic story that expresses the contrasts and contradictions of Iran and at the same time a story of a personal journey.
