Bride of Afghanistan - Glicée print on dibond behind plexiglass - Edition 7/7 + 2 AP - 2015

Dimensions: 60 x 90 cm
Tahmineh Mozavi (Iran, 1988) belongs to a leading group of Iranian photographers and filmmakers of her generation. In her works, also containing film documentaries, she focuses on social contradictions and taboos. As in Iran, daily life for women in Herat (Afghanistan) is a balancing act. Child marriage is still pervasive. Walking in the back lanes of the city, Monzavi came across 18-year-old Somayeh and her husband. Following local custom, Monzavi asked for the husband’s permission in order to take Somayeh’s picture. “She was newly wed,” Monzavi said. The woman was wearing a chador over her hair, and a veil of thin silk covered her face, delicate enough for a hint of red lipstick to peek through—a modern touch in the midst of tradition.

A portion of the revenue from this lot will be given to the Brain Technology Institute (BTI) Foundation, the only institute that is researching (bypass) technology for people with neurological diseases. The seller's commission fee will be donated by Catawiki.

    Ik heb bij deze koper een kavel gekocht, en direct betaald. Daarna hebben we twee maanden gewacht, de bestelling is nooit verstuurd.

    In general a great Item. The only thing which could be better is the delivery time. Takes to long and to many corespondence to get it. POSITIV for the art, 1 point less for the delivery time.
