Elderly man on his roof in Sar Agha Sayed Iran
An elderly man stands on top of the roof of his home gazing into the distance. Beside him a pole rises into the air. He lives in the village of Sar Agha Sayed, which is arguably one of the most strikingly beautiful villages in all of Iran. It has about 3,000 inhabitants in summer, and half that in winter. The village has no high school, and education appears not to be highly valued by many parents and their children. The marrying age is young, and it's not difficult to find women who gave birth at age 14. Sanitation is poor, and health issues abound.
