Eli Collection

In the southern expanse of Persia, lies an island known as Hengam, where the women adorn themselves in traditional garments. Amongst them is a remarkable figure named Eli, a widow and mother to two daughters. Despite her hardships, she maintains a sense of grace and resilience. Through the intricate art of weaving handicrafts, she sustains her family and carries on with unwavering hope for a better tomorrow. Her face speaks volumes of beauty, dignity, and unwavering strength.

This collection has garnered numerous awards and has been featured in exhibitions worldwide, including in Dubai, Iran, and Hungary. One notable photograph from the collection, “The Mother,” was honored as the best photo in the prestigious International Toolip Photography Contest of 2024 in Budapest, Hungary.
