Flashes of Persia

A visual poetry based on the fascination of Persian old days ornaments, architecture, landscape and music. Here images of historical heritage and nowadays street life, are rhymed by poetic nerve and accompanied with magic score, achieve a powerful melancholic effect recalling one’s personal memories while refle-cting over the history of Iran and humans traces in the stream of time.

and time.
