Espace Vital : Femmes Photographes Iraniennes
Espace Vital : Femmes Photographes Iraniennes – This book invites us to look at Iran through the lens of women, in a historical context where Iranian women are claiming their rights with determination and courage. Three generations of photographers cohabit here.
While each of them addresses one of the many issues and upheavals that Iranian society is going through, feminism transcends their works. Commitment and poetry are the key words of the works gathered. Whether documentary or conceptual, they all evoke Iranian society and contain a political charge that, if rarely expressed frontally, is often metaphorical.
The works of these 23 women photographers show an undeniable maturity and exceptional vitality.
“Photography is still a young art in Iran, but I have seen it evolve considerably over the last twenty years, when I created Silk Road, the first gallery in Tehran dedicated exclusively to photography. Although it is not supported by any institution, Iranian photography is traveling more and more outside its borders and is beginning to follow the path taken before it by cinema: the West’s infatuation is asserting itself, works are entering the collections of major international institutions, the interest of collectors is growing… Iranian women photographers invite us to immerse ourselves in this little-known society, where photography is a vital space for self-expression.” Anahita Ghabaian Etehadieh
