Foreign
Project info

In 2008, after leaving my country Iran by force and being brought to Berlin, the first feeling I experienced was being foreign. In a big crowded modern city, this feeling had always taken me to streets to know people that I had not known. Those who might be even lonelier, despite what I had thought before. In 2013, when I first discovered camera and photography until mid-2014 before studying in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography at University of Hanover, streets had different meaning for me. Since then, maybe I have not had the feeling of being foreign in the city and among people but I have tried to meet others and photograph their loneliness.
