Liliputs of Iran!

Az a Street/Documentary Photographer I traveled a lot. But this place and people are so different from anywhere I went before! Makhunik is a village in South Khorasan Province, Iran. Village is about 35 kilometers far from Afghanistan border. In ancient times this area is famous for short heights or dwarf living here. They are famous as Liliputs of Iran!
With a simple search on the internet you can find more information about the village but going there is a totally different experience.
The poor people, hopeless parents and no good future children is the most you can see! Every people has a deep story and I will never forget non of their faces.
