Photographer's Note

Abyaneh is a famous historic Iranian village near the city of Natanz in Isfahan Province.Abyaneh has been called an entrance to Iranian history. The local clothing, for example, is in a style of great antiquity. An Abyunaki woman typically wears a white long scarf (covering the shoulders and upper trunk) which has a colourful pattern and an under-knee skirt. Even the most immediate villages' women have different dress style so that one could tell if she is from Abyaneh or not. They have persistently maintained this traditional costume despite pressures from time to time by the government trying to change it.( روستاي ابيانه )
