An Iranian Journey
An Iranian Journey exposes the duality of life in modern Iran where youth navigate a thicket of Islamic laws and customs to live freely
Join Hossein Fatemi and FotoEvidence in the creation of a provocative photo book that reveals young people throughout Iran seeking freedom and self expression in the face of an Islamic state directed by institutions committed to conservative laws and customs.
Hossein spent ten years documenting people across Iran pursuing simple pleasures, sharing intimate times and expressing themselves in ways that put them at risk of being stigmatized or persecuted. Many people he photographed live divided lives: a modest and devout public life and a different life in private that reflects their real feelings and desires.
Hossein feels this tension personally, as he is unable to return to his family in Iran since publishing some of the photographs included in An Iranian Journey. He currently lives and works in the United States.
An Iranian Journey will contain approximately 80 color photographs, Hossein's reflection on his work, and an introduction by Iranian journalist Omid Memarian. The hard bound book will be printed on Sappi Magnum Volume paper at Ofset Yapimevi in Istanbul, where all of FotoEvidence's high-quality photography books are printed.
Add your name to the list of backers in An Iranian Journey (or remain anonymous if you prefer) and you will be part of creating a real-life portrait of modern-day Iran that celebrates Iranians desire for self expression and freedom.
