Iranian photographer to compete in Lumix photo festival

Tehran, A collection of photos called 'Life After Shock' taken by Fatemeh Behboudi about three earthquakes in Iran will vie at the 6th Lumix Festival for Young Photojournalism in Germany.

Life After Shock' describes the dramatic situation of Iranians who have survived three earthquakes in the past 15 years. She has specifically worked on three major tremblors: Tabriz 2012, Bushehr 2013 and Kermanshah 2017.

'My main concern regarding earthquakes in Iran is that the majority of Iranians are threatened by tremors, however, they still pay no heed to related safety tips,' Behboudi told Mehr News Agency.

Photos are in black and white primarily because of the sudden shock and bitter effects of earthquakes, she said, adding that colors cannot help this category of photos.

The Lumix Festival for Young Photojournalism will be held from June 20 to 24 in Hanover, Germany.
