Photographer's Note

Last month when i visited Darvish khan and his stone garden in a village called Balvard, i was very
excited to see him who was an old deaf-and-dumb shepherd and also his abstract artworks which were
a sign of his great imagination.
His eagerness to show his works and explain about them-although to establish communication with him
was not easy- could interest any visitor.
The trunks and branches of dry trees were the basis of his stone garden and on these trees, he used to
connect different shapes of stones to any other objects or even dead animals he might find where he was
living.
He had a description for each of those decorated trees and by nodding -specially to the sky and then to
his artworks- he was trying to share his thoughts and imaginations.
Unfortunately i heard of his death last week and decided to introduce him and his stone garden.In my
next post ,i will send his own picture while he was trying to explain about one of his art works.
