Professor Talinn Grigor on My Iran: Six Women Photographers

On November 20, Professor Talinn Grigor gave a gallery talk at the National Museum of Asian Art on their show “My Iran: Six Women Photographers.” This show will be on display until February 9, 2020.

“My Iran: Six Women Photographers” explores the complexities of life within and outside Iran, the home country of these 6 photographers. The images offer nuanced views of Iran while shedding light on each photographer’s identity as an artist. The photographers on display are Hengameh Golestan, Newsha Tavakolian, Shadi Ghadirian, Malekeh Nayiny, Gohar Dashti, and Mitra Tabrizian. All but Golestan work in this post-Revolution environment, staging and manipulating photographs to reveal deeply moving individual stories, as well as unique observations about contemporary life as an Iranian. Together, these images explore themes of memory, loss, and exile, but also of defiance and hope.
