Photographer's Note

This is first for a serie about Abyaneh village where located in Esfahan province,south-east of Tehran,almost 300 Km far from Tehran,170 Km from Qom and 80 Km from Kaashaan,on the north-western slope of Karkas Mount(3899m).

Abyaneh is an old village with a history more than 2000 years.

The bright,flowered scarves and heavily pleated, embroidered black skirts are traditional dress for the women from Abyaneh,where has been registered as a historical village by the UNESCO.

They speak a language,rooted in ancient Aramaic that is specific to their village,it's an ancient Parthian Pahlavi language.

Houses are of red clay and being built on the mountain slope, each house’s roof serves as the courtyard of the house above.

I will post more about the village,its people,culture and architecture.

Hope You like it.
