A collection of notes from the Iranian diaspora.
Arts, culture, community.

From Iranian American photographer Natalie Abbassi's self-exploratory photo series, “Self Study,” recently published by Guernica. In the series, Abbassi photographs herself twice, one as her “American self” and once as her “Iranian self.” From her statement:

In each image I’ve incorporated myself twice, once as the Iranian and once as the American. In some of my images I see conflict and in others, harmony between my two selves. This exploration is a growing one and much more work will follow.
