Exploring the Other: Contemporary Iran
through the lens of Iason Athanasiadis
January 25 - March 29, 2009
This groundbreaking and highly relevant exhibit takes the focus off Iran's politicians and realigns it squarely on the country and its people. Exploring the Other challenges the conventional media narrative of Iran by offering rare and candid insight into this enigmatic country from the perspective of an embedded international journalist and photographer. Internationally recognized correspondent and 2008 Nieman Fellow Iason Athanasiadis, who has spent more time than almost any other Western journalist living and working in post-revolutionary Iran, shares his extraordinary experience in this must-see exhibit.
