This man literally looks as though he has become a part of the dust of the Earth. Amoo Hadji is the 80-year-old Iranian man behind these photos and has not bathed in 60 years. Amoo resides in the village of Dezhgah in Iran, lives a very nomadic lifestyle, and depends on animal carcasses for food such as rotten porcupine meat.
Amoo’s skin is literally caked in soot and mud
Talk about, “thick skin”
One of his very few possessions is an old walking stick
Aside from abandoning showers all together, he’s also acquired some unconventional habits
Amoo uses a three-inch steel pipe to smoke animal dung as opposed to tobacco
He even enjoys five cigarettes at a time
He lives solely off the land
“Home is the here and now”
He’s built himself somewhat of a shelter that resembles a grave pit
…and has an open brick shack that was built for him by people who felt sorry for him during harsh weather
He chose this lifestyle after he had had some major setbacks in his early life
The big question: Why does Amoo choose to not bathe himself?
His belief is that it will bring him sickness
While some say he’s the “dirtiest man alive” he may very well be the freest man alive. He is free of possessions, subsists his own food, and sleeps beneath the stars.
