Location: Esfahan, Iran, 2010.
Esfahan is one of the major cities in Iran, located south of its capital, Tehran. I was backpacking in Iran when we started in Tehran and worked our way south towards Shiraz. Esfahan was the midpoint of our trip. The hospitality we have received in Iran has been nothing but generosity. We were given food, drinks, a taxi ride, and a tour amongst other things. Most of the people who have given us these gifts do not even speak the same language.
This photograph was created in Esfahan right in front of the Shah Mosque at Naghsh-e Jahan Square. The setting sun cast a golden light on the beautiful facade of the building, highlighting the fine details of Persian architecture. I have also included a family walking past in the photograph to give a sense of scale and a human touch to this centuries-old structure.

Born in Malaysia, I was bitten by the travel bug at a young age. My interest in exploring off the beaten tracks has led me to places such as Tibet, Iran, and Pakistan. While it’s nice to see new places, I have enjoyed the cultural experience of traveling more. I would bring home a piece of local culture from every place I visit, mainly in the form of wall art.
Maybe you have been to places I have photographed, or seen them elsewhere. I hope, through my work, I can bring a piece of memory or add an artistic touch to your living space.
