Examining the Middle East's most controversial country\, Exploring the Other approaches the nation of Iran from aesthetic and social counterpoints rarely seen in conventional media narrative. This exhi bit presents Iran as a study in contrasts\, from its melancholy landscapes to the ceremonial rhythms of Shiite Islam\, from murals commemorating the I slamic Republic’s martyrs to snapshots of a young generation moving within a post-revolutionary society. Iran as a nation of people\, places\, and cul ture is crisply represented in the photographs of Iason Athanasiadis\, an i nternational journalist who lived in Iran for three years. Athanasiadis rev eals a complete picture of a much misaligned nation by taking the focus off Iran’s politicians and realigning it squarely on the country and its peopl e.
