Being Iranian Photo & Book Presentation
Our Being Iranian project was screened on 6 December 2016 at the Hinterland Gallery in Vienna. In 2016, we held a worldwide photography competition, which asked Iranians and non-Iranians what it means to be Iranian. After receiving about 700 photos from across the world, our jury selected the top 50, which we published in our photography book Being Iranian.
The photos show how Iranian society and its diaspora are changing, what values exist within and outside Iran, the balance between modernity and tradition, gender and generational issues, how non-Iranians perceive Iranians and how photography can capture the spirit of a people and culture.
Please see our hardcover photography books for sale and our new Being Iranian postcard series.
