Entry Description

Iran is among the 32 countries that has been identified as having compulsory military service terms longer than 18 months. It depends on their educations. In the early of morning, because of this obligation, each soldier could have bitter & strange feelings in the way of their garrison. This series was taken near the Azadi tower. One of the most famous towers in Tehran. Azadi means freedom in Persian which in my point of view is so far from what soldiers are dealing with.
