Photographer's Note

Sizdahbedar or Sizdah Be-dar is the name of a festival in Persian Culture. Sizdah is the Persian term for thirteen. Leaving the house on the Thirteenth Day of Nowrouz, and joyfully spending the day outdoors have been a national tradition since ancient times in Iran.
Like the Persian New Year (in Persian: Nowruz), the tradition of Sizdah Bedar also traces back to the era of legendary king Jamshid who celebrated this outdoor festival together with his people, the Iranians.
