> DESCRIPTION

Self-taught photographer Newsha Tavakolian began her career as a photo-journalist at the age of sixteen, eventually publishing work in National Geographic, Le Monde, The New York Times, Newsweek, and Time Magazine. Her award-winning 2006 photo essay, Women in the Axis of Evil, responds to George W. Bush’s characterization of Iran, and other work since that time seeks to contradict the western media’s narrow depiction of Iranian women and their lives. Tavokolian's vibrant, engaging images document the evolving role of women as they battle or subvert gender-based restrictions.
