About the Book:

Shadi Ghadirian is one of Iran’s leading contemporary photographers. Born in Tehran in 1974, she has exhibited widely in Europe and the United States, and her work has been collected by museums worldwide. She came to the limelight in the late 1990s with her Qajar series, in which she examines the paradoxical position of women in Iran.
