Photographer's Note

a scan from my 2001 visit to Persepolis in Iran. Shot with a point & shoot film camera with unknown film brand bought in Iran. These pillars once supported a roof made of carved wood mainly imported from Lebanon (i believe).
Iran has a lot of great ruins, but they are all poorly taken care of, and there is barely any tourist infrastructure available. As seen with the example of the ruins in Bam, it is a good idea to visit these places before they become completely ruined.
