Edited and with an introduction by Rose Issa. Foreword by Marta Weiss, Curator of Photographs, Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

Shadi Ghadirian is one of Iran’s star photographers, whose work is eagerly collected by museums worldwide. Ghadirian’s themes are the paradoxical situations faced by women in Iran as they go about their daily lives. With great skill and much affection, she reveals the often humorous clash between tradition and modernity.
