Honorable Mention

Reza Golchin
I am freelance photographer and filmmaker live in Iran (Rasht city) . I have been working on documentary photography as well as film making. In these years, I was been working in social subjects. I aim to artistically capture important moments in everyday life rather than merely document. I am interested in culture and street scenes.

The chador is a form of dress, worn by some individuals in Iran, which consists of a full length semi-circle of fabric. Women are required to hold the material together with their hands or teeth as the garment typically does not contain any fasteners. Iranian women typically cover their bodies in full below the chador with loose fitting clothing / dress. The cover extends to a scarf or ‘Hijab’ which is worn to cover their hair.
