Seifollah Samadian shooting as usual...."I don't really shoot all the time, everyday, but you should look at my colleague who uses his camera all the time and you can see this in the beauty of his camera movements. I'm going to take one of his sayings 'Other people say they smoke 1 pack a day,' he says 'I smoke 5 packs a day - 5 packs of film.' It's not just that he uses all that film - good for the film companies but not necessarily for anyone else. But he knows how to enter a space, this gentleman can't look at anything without a camera. And when he turns off the camera its like his eyelids are closed. "

I know Samadian from years ago, back home.
I miss his eyes, its been long time since I received the last issue of his Magazin-Tasvir
I used to borrow his eyes to look around, now it’s been years since I didn’t see the sophisticated side of life.
Seeing his picture made me nostalgic for what I missed
Wish him well always
