This collection presents twelve photographic journeys through Iran in the twenty-first century. The participating photographers have each chosen a different aspect of daily life in their country; a cafe, a bus trip, a shopping centre, a "living martyr", the clerics etc. This kaleidoscopic vision takes the viewer to the very heart of the variety and contradictions of a people among who nothing seems to be in its place. A mosaic of contrasts appears in behaviour and attitudes, juxtaposing a world at the same time modern and archaic.
