The magazine cover photo by Salar Charmi. April 1st 2022 edition

On February 16, 2019

I noticed a lot of smoke from the roof of the house and it caught my attention. I was a news photographer at the time and rushed to the scene to cover the news.

When I arrived at the scene

I noticed that a recycling factory was on fire and a large crowd had come to help, some of them children and teenagers, and they were very excited to see the camera in my hands and asked me to take a souvenir photo.

I looked at this continuous image after taking it. This childish empathy and camaraderie was very attractive to me, because I believe that in areas where the class level of society is at the middle level, empathy and friendship are stronger, and these friendships are eternal, and comrades can not be separated.
