'One escapes urbanity to be in contact with the rural; two parallel realities. Leaving the first and sheltering the latter alters two senses: time and space. Photography is believed to have the capacity to capture both. However, the captured frame is incapable of freezing the unseen: what is left out. My books are an attempt to capture what goes on behind the camera.

The road refers to a path through which Naser al-Din Shah (the king of Iran in the late 19th century and the first Iranian photographer) used to pass to reach his country house. The path connects Tehran as the southern foothill of Tochal Mountain to its northern foothill. capturing the mountain from the city viewpoint in different states and then mirroring this visualization from the mountain top, I attempt to bridge between the city and the mountain that has been overlooked.' —from artist website
