About

Bio:
Ramin Rahimian
b. 1981 – Tehran, Iran
English, Farsi

I moved with my family to Sweden when I was five and lived there for three years. I became fluent in Swedish. I ate cheese from a tube. In 1989, we moved to beautiful northern California. I started school and learned English, and forgot Swedish. I wore parachute pants and a rattail haircut. During my first year at UC Berkeley, I stopped taking pictures of my friends skating and began to focus on photojournalism.

I worked for 2 years on the staff at the Minneapolis Star Tribune. I am now a freelancer living in Utah.

Dancing Rabbit: Ecovillage in Northeastern Missouri

blogandadbase

I recently shot this essay on a sustainable ecovillage called Dancing Rabbit in rural northeastern Missouri. The community consists of a little bit more than 50 visitors (who stay for 3 weeks), residents (on their way to membership), and full time members. They grow a lot of their own food. They build their own houses from renewable and reclaimed building materials. They are fully off the grid: using only solar and wind power. It is a very tight-knit community of people just trying to build a true community that is ecologically and socially responsible and conscientious.

More can be seen here and there is a multimedia piece that is just all the same photos but with music.

Thanks for looking!
