Photo Page - Iranian Images
Images from: Isfahan, The Bakhtiari Tribes, and South Central Iran.
Images from Isfahan's Bazaar and its workshops, the Mosques, Shiraz, and the Bakhtiari Tribes.
One of Isfahan's Several Ancient Bridges.
One of the bridges across Isfahan's Zendeh Rud (Zendeh River). Looking southwest, on the west side of the river is seen the multi-storied Park Hotel and in the distant background looms Mount Sophie and the road which leads to Shiraz, Iran. To the extreme right-center of the image is the Bronze Monument atop a high white-marble pedistal of the Shah of Iran Reza Pahlavi on his horse. The monument was destroyed during Iran's Islamic Revolution. See my book "Blood Flower" for the details of this monument's destruction.
One of the many shops along the sides of Isfahan's Great Square.
This is one of the many shops belonging to Isfahan's famous metalworkers, where are made and sold old style handmade metal objects and decorations which were prized by the many forgien tourists who came to Iran and Isfahan during the very prosperous times of the Shah Reza Pahlavi's rule.
This is one of my favorite images
This is a young man of a Bakhtiari tribe, everything about his image speaks of his sureness of his seductive handsomeness, and his pride of being a part of a tribe whose way of living has not essentially changed in the last ten thousand years.
A Powerful Image of Personal Certainty Displayed.
Proudly he stands as if to say, "Look here is a man who willingly stands without fear with his tribe against whatever fateful ravages time and nature might lift up against us."
Inside The Bazaar at Shiraz, Iran.
Sunlight seeps through the skylighting holes of the Shiraz Bazaar's arched roof.
One of the very many beautiful Mosques of Iran
This Mosque displays its similarities and its unique differences to the other Mosques which are everywhere to be found in Iran and the other Middle Eastern countries.
This is one of my favorite small Mosques
The decorations in form and color make this little Mosque as lovely as a desert flower.
