About this title


Iranian photography reveals a radical aesthetic, embracing both beauty and political resistance, that is shared by practitioners based in Iran--who have devised innovative responses to that country's political restrictions--as well as Iranians in exile--who have been able to create politically and culturally provocative works for the past 30 years. Shirin Neshat and Kaveh Golestan are perhaps the best-known photographers featured in this publication, which also introduces the work of 34 equally accomplished artists--including Reza Aramesh, Parastou Forouhar, Abbas Kiarostami, Amiral Ghasemi and Shadi Ghadirian. Along with images of their work, some of which has rarely been seen, each photographer contributes a narrative about their life and artistic practice, creating a definitive document on the state of contemporary Iranian photography that transcends Western clichés and misconceptions about the culture of this singular country.
