I discovered Tehran while watching Taste of Cherry (Abbas Kiarostami, 1997) when it first opened. I become very curious about the city in general and particularly about those locations where this masterpiece was filmed. I was fascinated with the main character´s connection to the land and how he started his personal quest in the Alborz Mountains, overlooking the metropolis.
This photographic work (conducted two decades after the film was made) is my personal tribute to the Alborz Mountains.
