The Latest

Supporte patiemment l’injustice sans chercher à t’en défendre, car l’injustice se retourne immanquablement contre son auteur. Et confie donc à Allâh le sort de l’oppresseur, car mon Seigneur n’est pas inattentif à ce que fait l’injuste.

Gohar DashtiToday’s Life and War 

Artist Statement: This series emerges from my experiences of the eight-year Iran-Iraq war, how this violence symbolically influences the emotional life of my generation, it gives us the fear that facing images of war on television and in the city through the walls.

This body of work represents war and its heritage how it permeates all aspects of contemporary society by depicting a couple in a fictionalized battlefield as they interact in everyday life for instance, watching television, surfing  the Internet and celebrating their wedding.

While my couple does not visibly express emotion, they nevertheless have a power of perseverance, determination and survival. I create moments that capture ongoing duality of life and war without precluding hope.

Gohar Dashti received her M.A in Photography from the Fine Art University of Tehran in 2005. She has developed a practice concerning social issues with particular references to history and culture in modern society.

*Disclaimer: I posted this back in May, but a keyword search on Tumblr revealed that there STILL hasn’t been enough love and attention shown to Dashti’s work. She deserves support for trying to bring a sense of humour to the strength and resilience with which people carry on their every-day lives during the insanity of war and occupation… ala Time That Remains
