Iranian Bodies & The Such

Amir Hossein Keihani, Asieh Ruholamini, Bahareh Bisheh, Edward Lucie-Smith, Oleg Tolstoy, Alan McKee, Mahmoud Maktabi


Without the internet, these prize-winning images by Iranian photographers would never have been seen in Iran, let alone anywhere else in the world. These startling images visually represent freedom or the lack thereof. The passion of these artists is evident in their searing hunger for complete artistic and ideological freedom. This collection of radical images was organized by an unofficial body called Persbook.
