My Iran: Six Women Photographers

Gohar Dashti

Born in 1980 in Ahvaz, Dashti works in a variety of media, including photography and video, and received her MA in Photography from the Fine Art University of Tehran in 2005. Much of Dashti’s work draws on her memories of growing up during the Iran-Iraq War (1980-1988), and centers on the relationship that individuals in contemporary Iran have to the country’s cultural and political history. She lives and works in Tehran.
