Photographs of six female at the Szekler Gallery in Washington

From the dynamism of the street to the quiet corners of distant memories, the works featured in My: Six Women Photographers explore the complexities of life within and outside their home country.  The images offer nuanced views of  the country while shedding light on each photographer’s identity as an artist. Hengameh Golestan’s shots of women protesting in the streets of the capital following the 1979 Revolution capture the spirit and force of a social and political movement that dramatically altered the role of women in society.
