Photographer's Note

In December 2003 there was a terrible earthquake in Bam - nearly 45.000 out of 120.000 people died, most of survivors remains without any shelter.
The whole big, bustling town is now completely destroyed.

I came here in September 2004, but not much has changed since the day of the catastrophe. Most of the people live in tents or in steel barracks. At the moment old ruined buildings are being destroyed, making place for rebuilding the city.

This picture was taken few seconds after some ruined building was demolished, and a big cloud of dust emerged, covering the sun.

I wish the best to the people of Bam!
