Ramak Fazel and Fort Wayne

Ramak Fazel - Storefront for Art and Architecture - Art - New York Times: "IN a recent morning interview in a Midtown Manhattan office Ramak Fazel came across as the quintessential world citizen: tall, slim and elegant, his English tinged with an untraceable accent and peppered here and there with an Italian phrase...."
"...Shaving was one of the last things on Mr. Fazel’s mind when, on Aug. 7, 2006, he set out on a photographic and philatelic odyssey from his mother’s home in Fort Wayne, Ind. His mission was to photograph each of the nation’s 50 state capitol buildings and dispatch a postcard from each city, using postage stamps from a childhood collection...."

Ft. Wayne plays a prominent role in this New York Time article about a man who wanted to photograph all the state capitols, and who happened to be of Iranian descent. He's from Ft. Wayne.
