Newsha Tavakolian Blank Pages of an Iranian Photo Album

Renowned Iranian photographer Newsha Tavakolian mixes artistic creation and journalism, starting from the traditional Iranian family photo album to deftly chronicle middle class life by following Iranians from several generations with her camera. She does not shy away from the complexity, inaccessibility, and myriad contradictions that shape her homeland. She manages to capture the full picture of contemporary Iran.
Newsha Tavakolian (b. 1981 in Tehran) began working professionally in the Iranian press at the age of 16. She has since covered regional conflicts in Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Yemen. Her work is published in international magazines and newspapers such as Time Magazine, Newsweek, Stern, Le Figaro, The New York Times, Der Spiegel, Le Monde, NRC Handelsblad and The New York Times Magazine. Her work has been exhibited internationally at such museums as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, the Victoria & Albert Museum and the British Museum in London. Tavakolian was selected as the fifth laureate of the Carmignac Gestion Photojournalism Award which is accompanied by this publication.
