The Bakhtiari tribe inhabits an area of approximately 25,000 square miles that straddle the central Zagros Mountains in South West Iran. The nomadic pastoralist population of this tribe embodies the Bakhtiari cultural ideals.  These beautiful  people  migrate seasonally between their summer quarters within the high plateau pastures west of the city of Esfahan to the low land plains of their winter quarters in the province of Khuzistan for herd grazing. This photo gallery shares  production images of tribal land, culture, migration and education. It is my hope that viewing this production will provide  insight to the significant cultural contributions of the Bakhtiari tribe of Iran and facilitate study and appreciation  of a culture that has embraced humanity.
