A Bakhtiari family walking fast
Coming down the dry side of the mountain
Migrating on a tractor
Morteza relaxing

I decided to walk the Bakhtiari twice-yearly migration over the Zagros mountains after seeing the 1926 film, Grass. My photos of Bakhtiari life were shown at SOAS in 2008; along with some much earlier images – recognising that it was on Bakhtiari land that Middle East oil was first found; and the tribe invaded Tehran in 1909.
