Photograph from the meeting of Sheshdeh’s dervishes with an important Sufi, the man who is wearing a cloak, sitting above the sixth person from left on the bottom row.
The photograph was probably taken in the early 1950s and the location was a Khanegah – a building designed specifically for gatherings of a Sufi brotherhood- in Sheshdeh, Fasa County, Fars Province, Iran. The image shows the clothing style of the period really well.
Photographer: Nouri Roshan. Picture was sent by Hamid Abdoli
