One of Shahīd Shahriyārī’s students
November 10th, 2016
We were looking for a picture of Professor Shahriyārī’s where he had on a jacket that we could use for his wake. We did not want to bother his family with this request during this time. And most of the pictures which we had of the professor were ones in which he was in shirtsleeves and was smiling or laughing. We did not have a picture that could be used for a formal and somber occasion. We chose on of the pictures which was more suitable than the others from among the pictures that we had of him from the times we had gone on road trips together or gone camping and such, and put on a jacket for him courtesy of Photoshop. This same picture is still at his grave.
