Sia Yazdanfar

He has resided in the U.S. for the majority of his adult life.

A few years ago he went back to his motherland to reconnect with his roots and explore the timeless traditions and trades of different regions in the country.

With each annual series of photographic expeditions, he seeks out under-explored and less revealed people and places of the country, being increasingly  dedicated to traditional worlds in outlying villages and off the beaten path settlements.

With no language barrier and open to tearing down cultural ones, he uses the medium of photographic storytelling to share some of these tales with his audience.
