My Iran: Six Women Photographers

Newsha Tavakolian

A self-taught photographer, Tavakolian (born 1981, Tehran) began working at a daily newspaper at the age of 16. Following an interruption in her photojournalistic work during Iran’s presidential elections in 2009, Tavakolian began developing independent still and moving image projects that combine social documentary with portraiture. She continues to work in this vein, paying attention to the stories of women, especially in Iran.
