My Iran: Six Women Photographers

Shadi Ghadirian

Ghadirian (born 1974, Tehran) studied photography at the University of Azad, where she was one of the first to graduate after the revolution. Her work focuses on the complex, contradictory world in which young women live in post-revolutionary Iran. She makes visible these paradoxes in creative, often humorous ways that subvert traditional portraiture and popular conceptions of what it means to be a modern woman in Iran. She lives and works in Tehran.
