Before immigrating, I worked on this project where I took self-portraits with my belongings, such as family, friends, or places. This was a way for me to ask these questions to myself and my friends on social media, aiming to determine if immigrating was genuinely worth it:
- To leave the room; the safest place in the world
- To leave the home; the dairy of life
- To leave the family; the happiness and the sadness
- To leave friends; the most similar people
- To leave Tehran; the toxic relationship
- To leave or not…
I would then look at these pictures and tried to answer these questions to make a decision before leaving.
