A selection of photographs from the series titled, "Mommoni" ( a nickname for grandmother in the Farsi language). This series evolved from my visit back home to Iran after living in the US for eight years. During this time, my Mommoni passed away of liver cancer and being so far away from my family, I was unable to mourn her passing. Not only do these photographs fulfill my personal need to grieve but they are also able to convey a sense of love, life, and culture. This work elicits an intimate insight into a different way of life that in actuality is not so different, as all cultures value family and community, albeit through a variety of traditions.
