This project is an on going project which started since last July in Germany.

We don’t even know how strong we are until we are forced to bring that hidden strength forward. In times of tragedy, of war, of necessity, people do amazing things. The humancapacity for survival and renewal is awesome.

I took photographs of women who were born during world war II, they had to grow up quickly and experience a shorter childhood. Although they were not directly involved inthe war, they played a significant role in rebuilding their society. We always value the heroes of war and the contribution these women made, seems pretty heroic to me.

I think they deserve to be heard and seen more often.

Geography is not important in my project; war is war, and I believe working on this subject can be a great source of inspiration for me. I myself was born during Iran-Iraq war and this experience may empower me to learn how to do this for my own society.
