Hand-sewn banner, photo series existing out of 20 photos taken on the streets of Tehran, Iran; photo project continues in The Netherlands. Prints available in multiple sizes.
2019

During my stay at the Aria Residency in Tehran, Iran I made a banner with the quote 'Men of quality do not fear equality'. I took it to the streets of Tehran and made a photo series of those who support the statement. 20 photos were made, the project continues in The Netherlands with those who are willing to participate.

The text on the banner is made entirely out of hand-knotted beads, all fabrics were bought at the Tajrish bazar in Tehran, Iran.
