Home > About this site

My name is Mehrdad Aref-Adib. I grew up in Tehran and have lived in London since 1983.

I have kept this blog since 2003 as an online visual diary. It has grown organically and is here to keep my main tools -eyes- sharp.

It is basically a rather unfocused blog with a few running themes. The Look-alikes section on this site is very popular.

I write about London, Art, Architecture, and Design. I am very much into Koobism and take lots of photographs.

I am also the co-founder & editor of ShahreFarang.
