Documenting Iran Via Instagram

Based in Tehran, Sina Shiri started taking photos at the age of 16 for a student-run news agency in the city of Qazvin. This self-taught photographer now pursues self-assigned projects for his Instagram account that documents Iran in a vibrant colourful way. “This is closer to real life,” says Sina Shiri in the user featured Instagram blog. “In Iran, most of the documentary photography is black and white, but I prefer to work in color…The cliché photos, they usually show the limitations of Iran, like the hijab, the covering of women, the hardships, or the limitations. I don’t want to show only the limitations. I want to show that Iran is a different country than what you are seeing in photos”.
