Myself

Statement of My family In the four last decades, with the victory of the revolution in my country In 1979, our population has been on the rise. All the people in the first photograph, have a close relationship with me since these youths are my cousins. These days, I collected many members of my clan to create a collection that determined in Iranian history because this is a small group of Iranian society. One reason that causes this collection has been diversity in my family who has included many different regions and opinions. When I started it, I wrote some questions to record their movies (520 minutes) and attach them to this project like, what is the meaning of life and their plans for the next ten years that you can see as a documentary movie in the near future. It demonstrates a community that contains much information as a historical document like the percent of people who selected Hijab. Many information like the questions about Iran today, from 2017 to 2020. Totally, the number of my clan has 195 members that 16 died and I have taken pictures of 96 people and 83 of them have remained.
