A Journey Inside – a photo project by 8 Iranian photographers

Panos photographer Hossein Fatemi and his assistant Maryam Athari have been working with eight Iranian photographers – four men and four women – over the 14 months to create A Journey Inside. The project seeks to explore contemporary Iran in all its complexity through the eyes of these photographers. Taken from different parts of Iran these photographers will return to Iran to teach others. Their vision of their country should dispel certain stereotypes that have developed about Iran over the course of the past 35 years since the Islamic Revolution.

The project team also includes Ali Kaveh and Alireza Ghoreishi. The photographers are: Bahar Aslani, Negin Kiani, Zahra Ostadzadeh, Mahya Rastegar, Hamid Akhlaghi, Hossein Heidarpour, Ali Tajik and Saeed Zeidi.
