Black & White Mashhad City
Strolling is a kind of endless walk in the maze of a modern metropolis which is combined with some sort of decentralized perception. Watching and being attracted to the visual attraction and urban space is the main driver of the stroller. The strolling photographer shoots urban images as a cinema camera does, he also edits the photos as an editor. In The Painter of Modern Life essay by Baudelaire, the stroller is presented as the hero of the modern world whose energies are fueled by modern urban sparks.

All the black and white photos of these two collections have been taken on the street. That is why, unlike my previous methods of photography, it has not been anticipated. The photos were taken during various strolls, based on the sense of the moment and their particular circumstances. Aimless exploration, imagining fantasy adventures, and momentary and random encounters, form the basis of this collection.
According to Richman, effective street photography is telling a story in a photograph, not just a simple recording of what has happened at a specific time and place. This definition has attempted to depict human beings and their everyday actions, and the photographer as a consumer of a part of the urban space, has expressed this monotonous routine.
