Bicycles


We have already written that nobody is more sensitive than the Iranian photographer. Perhaps only the Iranian female photographer. As you can tell the Persian photo from a hundred ones, so you can also immediately recognize whether it was taken by a woman, with that refinement, attention and insight which is equally characteristic of Iranian women and of Persian poems. A perfect proof is the series by Alieh Sâdatpur on the old bicycles of Isfahan.

Va obbligatoriamente letto anche il bellissimo commentario di Francesca sui somari-portaisidi che da lontano paiono una bicicletta.

Bikejuju has just pointed it out that most of these bicycles are classic Chinese roadsters, and he has even discovered the Phoenix emblem on one of them.
