Amoo Hadji is definitely obnoxious at first glance, as he reminds some unreal creature who came out of science fiction. But the 80th birthday is real and he lives in a village in Iran in a completely primitive life. He hasn’t taken a bath for more than 60 years and the only possessions are the clothes he wears and a pipe which he smokes animal manures. His life is difficult since every day he needs to find where to sleep and rarely comes into contact with the world.

He feeds on fruits, but also with what he finds in the trash and often enjoys a local drink that locals give him. Although hardly anyone would approach him because of an occurrence, the villagers say he is harmless and likable to most. The photos were taken by a visitor in the village, who tried to come in closer contact with him and learn the reasons for the life he chose to live. He said that he just likes living and does not want anything more than that.
