This ongoing series looks at the immigration of Iranian youths, to distant countries, who wish to find a better situation in order to have a successful life.
They leave their own country, not to experience new things, but because it is a compulsory evacuation, like those flood-stricken people seeking refuge in a foreign land. This is a daily experience, visiting young students who are trying hard to leave their country; some wish to pursue their educational goals and others seek permanent residency.
This project presents their last portraits, taken before they leave their motherland, as a memory for them to hold, of a land that they might never see again.
