Nowruz, Iranian New Year, is an ancient holiday that falls on the spring equinox (this year Sunday, March 20). It is a time of new beginnings marked differently by different groups in Iran and beyond. This collection of striking photographs from Middle East Images shows villagers marking the day with traditional colourful clothes, bonfires and dancing in Iran’s Kurdistan province.
