THE SEEDS AND THE FLOWERS
It was 40 years ago, in my native country. When I saw him, tender and proud, surrounded by this adversity, I thought of Iran, its cat-shaped design on the map. Over the decades that passed, the feeling that I had then remained the same regarding its destiny (as well as the destiny of its people whether they stayed or left on the roads of exile). A fragile destiny between Revolution and war, repression and sanctions.
Today, I think of this sentence of the poet Khalil Gibran
In the autumn I gathered all my sorrows and buried them in my garden. And when April returned and spring came to wed the earth, there grew in my garden beautiful flowers, unlike all other flowers. And my neighbours came to behold them, and they all said to me: "When autumn comes again, at seeding time, will you not give us of the seeds flowers that we may have them in our gardens?" #iran #persiangulf #cat #hope #blackandwhite #khalilgibran#revolution #islamicrevolution#photooftheday #photojournalism #reza#rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography#rezaphotojournalist #webistan
