Mahin Monroe | Arman Stepanian

Arman Stepanian is an Iranian photographer, well known in the world.

He uses his camera as a tool to create a way to bring out his own inner feelings and thoughts mostly towards the position of women in postmodern Iran, the only country in the world where wearing the hijab is legally required. His latest collection titled Mahin Monroe, explore notions of femininity in relation to Islamic fundamentalism and militancy in Iran, where the question of women and the concept of the hijab had become so politicized that women use the hijab as a sign of their discontent with the way they are treated in public spaces. This is the main theme of Stepanian recent art works.
