Praise For…


The poetry that lies at the heart of Iranian culture comes alive in this transfixing portrait of a society in upheaval... From the chillingly familiar pictures of the 1979 Iranian Revolution to the boundary-pushing art of the present, the artists featured here reveal photography as a form of protest that gains power from its diversity and ability to both depict an often-impermeable society and envision a new version. This is excellent.
