Before visiting Iran for two months I didn’t know what to expect. I preferred to take a plunge and make up my own mind since media talks mostly negatively about the country. It didn’t surprise me that my family and friends were worried when I decided to travel to this controversial country. My partner and I planned to hitchhike and couchsurf, which is illegal in Iran but our hunger for the experience of meeting people in such way was bigger than following the rules. The images I shot show quotes from people of all ages from all over Iran. The conversations I had with them inspired me for this photo project. I wrote the quotes on pieces of printed paper and placed each on either public or private spaces. I published the Images on Instagram, a place where the world can hear their voices. Iran is very much more than just politics, but it quickly becomes a topic when the rest of the world judges upon it.
