Collection of photos of Baharlu (Baharloo) tribe.

Unique collection of photos that represent the artistic impulses of a rural notable from the Baharlu (Baharloo) tribe. The photos give us an intimate glimpse of the multiple dimensions of tribal life, including economic and cultural, as well as documenting the many changes that occurring in the region, and the country, during the 1950-60s.

The Baharlu (Baharloo) tribe lived in the Southern Zagros Mountains near Shiraz, Iran.
