Fatemeh Behboudi – Photography

Fatemeh Behboudi is a documentary photographer in Iran who is aiming to capture the culture and feel of a country where the discipline of documentary photography itself is still quite new.

This series of images is from her ongoing project, Mourning for Hussain, where she documents how Shiite muslims across Iran celebrate Ashoura. Ashoura is a celebration of the life and martyrdom of Imam Hussain, the grandson of the prophet Muhammad. As a window into a world we might never see otherwise, you can’t get anything much more interesting or thought provoking than this.
