Photographer's Note

Illumination
Kashan is the first of the large oases along the Qom-Kerman road which runs along the edge of the Great Desert. Its charm is therefore mainly due to the contrast between the parched immensities of the Kavir region and the greenery of the well-tended oasis, to the lively atmosphere of this almost compulsory halt, the restful shade of cupola- or vault - covered houses and the coolness of gardens made even more pleasant by their water - fountains. The caravanserais near the city are in ruins but Kashan's secular function remains
