Travel
Colourful village Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari Province, Iran
by Babak Mehrafshar

“This image was taken at the village of Sar Aqa Seyed. Its interconnected buildings are built into the mountains and have an unusual and beautiful architecture, with roofs serving as the courtyards and streets of the buildings above.
Most of the homes have no windows and only one door. One morning, when everyone else was sleeping, I woke up early to shoot before the sunrise.
Suddenly, I saw a woman carrying supplies for her livestock and took the chance to photograph her as she moved through this remarkable village.”
