    Born in Iran, Mehran Naghshbandi grew up in Sanandaj, a city surrounded by Zagros mountains, where nature was always an important part of people’s lives. After moving to north of Iran to study industrial design, the nature there around Mehran Naghshbandi amused him so much. Under such environment, Mehran Naghshbandi had the chance to hear the sea closer than any sound and hike for hours in the maze of jungles, enabling to record the scenes that lots of people have forgotten to see and feel clearly despite the fact that they are exposed to them everyday.
