Last Day of Shoot in Iran

From left to right, Simon, Rick, Karel, and I. Ten days of travelling, excitement, story telling, and discovery come to an end!

“I just showed a slide show to my staff and one of my staff said she was stunned by how human that place was. Just the reality of families and normalcy. People going down to the river and having a picnic on a blanket, people cooking for guests, ... And how, I think, simplistic our notion of a country can be if we are just clinging to a few easy-to-embrace media images.

Never once did I hide the fact that I was an American and never once when people found out that I was an American was there anything but good vibes.” Said Rick in an interview with BBC’s “The World” after visiting Iran.
