    Some shots I did in Iran a few years back on "The History of Football" a 13 x 1 hour TV series for Freemantle Media, all shot on DigiBeta unfortunately. Whilst filming the scene of the "large mural of soldiers with traffic in the foreground" a secret police vehicle spotted us and we were arrested. We were interrogated and held for six hours while they made their checks to make sure we weren't spies. Despite the unpleasant experience it didn't change my feelings for the country and its people, some of the friendliest and hospitable on this planet.

      A visual poem of my Izmir - Ankara - Tehran trip with Trans-Asia Express in April 2013. Just 550D and Tamron 17-50mm accompanied me. All handheld. 2 Weeks. More than 5000km, and lots of friends :) Shot and edited by me. (http://aykutalpersoy.com) Music: Gustavo Santaolalla - The Journey The quote in the begining is an excerpt from Fernando Pessoa's poem: To Travel "To travel! Leave countries behind Be someone else indefinitely, Having a soul without roots, Means living only to see To belong to no one, not even myself Move ahead always, follow The absence of any real end And having the wish to reach it Traveling this way is really traveling. But I do so without needing More than the dream of an opened road. The rest? Just earth and sky?" Love and share :) Follow our shit http://www.facebook.com/hellocolorizmir

        In February 2009 I was fortunate to spend 3 weeks traveling in Iran (a.k.a Persia). In those 3 weeks I got to explore Rasht, Tehran, Shiraz, Persepolis, Maybod, Yazd and along the way I met by some of the most friendly & welcoming people I have ever met. Iran thankyou so much!

          Despite what all the media are yammering at you, despite all the fear mongering about Iran's "nuclear threat" (Iran has been fully verified by the IAEA and ALL the U.S. intelligence community agree and are on record that Iran is not pursuing nuclear weapons), despite talk that Iran is intolerant, despite the daily barrage of bad press and unpleasant innuendo, Iran is a great country, friendly, cultured, fun and spiritually-minded! The "Powers That Were" are dead set on taking us to war against Iran, but "They lied about Vietnam... Iraq...Afghanistan..." and "Iran Is NOT Our Enemy ! " :-)

            کاری از علی یار راستی - A film by Aliyar Rasti محصول خانه هنرهای شهری - An Urban Art House Production تهران ۱۳۹۱ - Tehran 2012 uah.ir * شهر يک اثر هنری است* *مفهوم " خوانايی شهر"* به اين معناست که به سادگی بتوان اجزای شهری را بازشناسايی و تفسير* *کردو اين مفهوم مهمترين عامل شناسايی پيوستگی عناصر شهری از ديدگاه لينچ است. ازنظر او شهر مانند يک متن خواندنی است و"خوانش شهر" به شهروندان برای بازيابی هويت خويش در فضاکمک می کند .به اين ترتيب احساس ايمنی شهری و پذيرش فرديت در کالبد کليت شهری پذيرفتنی می شود و احساس تعلق به شهر و هويت بخشی شهر به فرد از امکان خوانش متن شهر تحقق می يابد. »کاميلوسيته« از انديشمندان معاصری است که* شهر* را* به مثابه يک اثر هنری* می داند و براين اساس معماری شهری را »هنر فضايی« نامگذاری کرده است. او در کتاب " شهرسازی بر اساس اصول هنری" نگرش های توسعه شهری بر مبنای طراحی ماشين را زير سووال می برد و بعد فنی شهر را صورت بسيار ثانويه شهر معرفی کرده و سيمای حقيقی فضای شهری را متاثر از منطق زيبايی شناسی اثر هنری تفسير می کند. بر اساس نظريه او فضای شهری بايستی درتامين نياز فيزيکی و روانی شهروندان و پرورش احساسات پاک و خشنودی عمومی و شادی همگانی و تقويت و جذب انرژی مثبت و سازنده با* تکيه بر هنر وفرهنگ* نقش آفرينی کند. برهمين اساس او* "ديدن "* را *مهمترين معيار زیست شهری* قلمداد می کند وديد ناظر پياده را مبنای قضاوت محيط* *شهری می داند.فیلم شهربه *مثابه یک **اثر هنری* ما را مخاطب شهری می کند که با همه پریشا نی اش باز هم می توان دوستش داشت خانه هنرهای شهری

                  Location: Toronto, Canada This is my way of showing support for the millions of courageous people in Iran who are protesting the results of the Iranian Presidential Elections that took place on June 12, 2009. We must work together to give Iranians a voice outside of Iran. "May all your memories be captured"
