The Iranian film director Abbas Kiarostami ( Tehran, Iran 1940) is also a remarquable photographer. I like this black and white composition, its minimalism and its strict geometry.

There is rythm in that vast landscape, black-white, black-white…up into the sky, do you see it? The long ascending lines and the “weight” of the clouds seem to enhance the solitude and the burden of the lonely traveller.


‘Roads 33’, 1989.
