Kares Le Roy has spent the last six years traveling and photographing in Persia and Central Asia.
He now spends more time in these little-known regions of the world -which became his favorite pictorial field- more than in his native country.
At 34, he has already accomplished important projects such as two books, one short film and a documentary.
Collaborations with Doctors without Borders, l’Équipe Magazine and National Geographic have brought him a certain recognition, yet it is the power of the portrait of a grandmother – the radiant icon of the cover of his first book – that resonates most strongly.
For his new project he has traveled 16 months in a cargo van with a visceral commitment and unwavering will for this timeless testimony, to let it live beyond the circuits of his memory cards. This obstinacy gave birth to a book: Ashayer – nomads in Persian – in which Kares narrates his immersion in the tribal world. Between Iran and Afghanistan the photographer – nomadic in his own way – indeed enmeshed himself with different surviving ethnic groups of these regions. He utterly dived in their lifestyle. His book is an artifact of cultures that tend to vanish in our globalized world of the 21 century.
