14 Dec 2017 - “Fireplace Growing Cold” launched at Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art

“As you journey through the pages of this fascinating book, you will find impressive historical photographs of the Iranian Nomads.  They still travel – though now in much smaller numbers than before – from one place to another across Iran’s vast and atmospheric landscape.”

These words were shared by the UN Resident Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative, Mr. Gary Lewis.  Mr. Lewis was asked to write a foreword for a book entitled “Fireplace Growing Cold” which features exquisite pictures of Iranian nomads taken by Mr. Morteza Poursamadi, one of Iran’s best-known photographers.  Mr. Poursamadi has captured moments that otherwise might have been lost and forgotten.
