This Is Amin

This is Amin.


Amin's dream is to drive a Ferrari. He jokes, and then becomes suddenly serious with a haunting, dark Persian stare before uttering his real dream: that one day our race is "human being", our religion is "humanity" and our nationality is "citizen of the world." Amin thinks deeply, and then laughs and says, "Well maybe if I was driving a Ferrari now I would be thinking of this crap!"


Amin is currently working at John Galt Games after being recommended by his fellow Iranian programmer, Ali, who shares the flowing locks of Sayid from Lost and the comic stylings of Cicak Man himself. Amin has recently passed the killer gauntlet programmer test of Hafiz (our lead tech brain) with a score of 85. Nobody has ever scored this high, except for Hafiz himself, who resides with the demigods of C++ in his own heavenly sphere of programming and peace.


This comes from my "Dream" portrait series at Located Here.

    Great shots, and thanks for mentioning C++ at the end. I am not a programmer, but I hang out with them, and the mention of languages makes my eyes glaze over. Thankfully, I got to read a lot before I got to the part about C++. :)

    Seen in my contacts' photos. (?)

    A haunting, dark Persian stare?!!! is that something you relate to Iranian?

    I think his silence was for him to gather his thoughts before speaking.

    Nice portrait... enjoyed reading the description... thank you.
