Rooftop, a Piece of Freedom
The second-place winner of the 2nd joint Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance – UNICEF Iran photo contest “Children’s Lives during COVID-19 Pandemic”
Professor, John Medina, molecular biologist, says: “our children will not grow alone, and the necessity of being in a group, tribe and society is undeniable for them and this is the key to the mental and behavioral development of the children.”
Children have no role in the outbreak of the COVID-19. However, it is evident that the physical communication of children with others in the contemporary technological world has declined and after the COVID-19 outbreak has been almost decreased to none. This issue brings about Irreparable harms to their mental development.
Through this photo story, I have tried to depict the children trying to enjoy their inalienable right to play. Current situation forces them to play on the rooftops which of course is not safe and poses countless risks for the children.
