The documentary photography and its challenging subjects is something that most of the photographers in Iran are passionate to acquire. In the past few years some of the self-written resources whether if it’s related to the learning system of universities or in self-regulating classes were presented by people that aren’t social documentary photographers that often in the end of the work make the students more confused than ever.
Unfortunately there is no rational and productive reference that could overcome the thirst of the students for learning more about this major. Academic institutions and associations also was and still is fulfilling the students and enthusiasts demands with fine-art photography or photojournalism and taking photos of celebrities by mistake.
In this way Ravi social documentary photography school wants to do its part by providing references close to the global standards in order to resolve a little mount of this need.
People who are passionate about social documentary photography in Sirjan, were the ones that took a further step by their interaction and communication with the Ravi photos educational group.
First by inviting the Ravi photos teachers to hold a workshop, they took the step of becoming acquainted with the theoretical and methodical foundation and now there are in a group of eight practicing their daily homework in the major of technical skills of narration in social documentary photography.
In this essential and novel approach of social documentary photography, I had the chance of not only traveling to Sirjan for a workshop that took couple of hours, communicating and meeting talented and passionate young people of the district but also visiting and taking photos of the bazar and the local jobs.
This collection is a result of the journey that Ravi photos teacher had in Sirjan and holding a class there.
