Photographs from Gholam-Hossein Saedi’s “Ilkhchi”, an ethnography of a village located in Iran’s East Azerbaijan Province (1963, Tehran).

The majority of Ilkhchi residents were members of the Ahl-e Haqq sect of Shiite Islam. In many ways, their traditions and lifestyle were different from those of other villages and towns in the region.
