Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 185043719X, Paperback)

This book explores, through the vision of ten contemporary Iranian photographers, the contrasts and contradictions that exist in Iranian Society at the beginning of the twenty-first century. Each representation is different to the next and each image serves to represent the main conflict present in Iran today: that of the power of tradition versus the quest for modernity. Each of the ten photographers has chosen an aspect of daily life in their country, for example, a café, a shopping mall, and the clerics, with each serving to show another part of the mosaic of cultural experience in Iran. One theme that remains constant through all of the images is that of women, who remain living symbols of the interaction between change and stagnation. In this book, women test the limits of the Hijab and their experience is used to represent that of young women all around the world.
