Tehran Night Life
in the contest ILUMINARTE 2016
Last year when attending Fajr film festival I had to take a bus to go home late night. I was so shocked with the world inside it. to spend the whole night inside a bus is indeed such an exotic way of life in which you pay to get in, get to sleep through the whole path, then you get off waiting for the same bus for a few minutes, then again you have to pay your way back to the same spot. Such a mundane repeated activity. so another long term project involving these nights started. The idea of seeing and freezing the very true everyday moments of lives and humanity is always on my mind during any of these projects. The passion to see the world through the lens, as if you are not one of the members of this world but you are just recording it, or you are not playing but just watching it. I’ve often looked for satisfying ideas to spend my free time after work or in the off days, carrying a camera everywhere lets you be there by all means. Sounds freaky but I do feel lost without it. Besides, this city is indeed a relying source of storytelling. you actually don’t need to be any wiser than shooting the reality and narrating the truth without any manipulations. The stories are there in the bodies, looks, colors and forms and I always tell myself, just keep calm and shoot it!
