Where much life on the street is presented by the world\'s media as foreign and inhibited, behind these closed doors the lens captures a life that is immediately recognisable in all its untrammelled richness. It takes on a central role as a kind of counterpoint to the contested street, functioning as a new public sphere. It is both far away and close to home. These vignettes are framed by young photographers who, through their own storytelling, might help change the stories we tell about Iran.
Iranian Living Room is the first of a series of editorial projects self-published by Fabrica. The 15 photographers were selected by Enrico Bossan, Head of the Editorial Area at Fabrica.
