Photo 3 is surreal.

Photo 4 made me feel really strange. Love his style though, especially the first one.

Wow, those are amazing shots, both as documentary and as art, and that's a sweet and rare combination. Thanks for introducing me to Saeedi's work.

So good I came back to look at them several more times and have a new photographer to follow.

Since you didn't get many comments, know that this post was truly appreciated by some folks.
