Photographer's Note

``Sarsat`` people had been so much brave and beautiful who originally used to live in east of Europe in duration of Rome empire. they traveled as soldier to middle Asia,Caucasus and around,with Rome army.some of them stayed and live.they were famous because of beautiful women with blue eyes. some times kings gave their women as a big gift to other king`s countries.
In Safavian period,in Iran,around 4 centuries before, these people used as soldiers and they were so much effective in these army.they travel to south of Iran when Safavian started to fight with Portuguese there.be cause of these people used to live in cold place, and south of Iran is so much hot, on the other hand,Safavian needed them to support their army in south, they sent theses people to the cold place of Fars province that it was the living place of some Kurd people.in fights that it happen,Sarsat wined and they settled on ``Dej Kurd(Kurd castle)``.
At this time,they have their neighbor its name is ``charkas`` in Dej Kurd and their race mixed up with people like ``Lor`` people or ``Turk`` and from that race just rest some time blue or grey eyes or white skin.
I saw this old woman who talk about a thing that how much i tried to know i could not understand.she was from that people.
you can see an old Sarsat man in work shop.
