Publisher's description: Since the revolution in 1979, Iran has developed its own image culture in public spaces that serve primarily as transit zones and platforms for the projection of state-sanctioned religious ideology. Between 2011 and 2014, German artist Oliver Hartung, former freelance photographer for the New York Times, produced a body of work on Iran comprised of images which, upon first glance, depict colorful street paraphernalia, posters, graffiti, murals, monuments, and war cemeteries, but upon a closer inspection reveal a much deeper psychology engineered to bolster the myth of the Islamic Republic. In this unique view of the Middle East -- often lost amid images of war and conflict -- Hartung has created a portrait of a country still largely unknown to the West. Part of a long-term project exploring the contemporary cultures of the Middle East, Hartung's thoughtful monograph is packed with over 300 color images. Hartung's last publication with Spector was Syria Al-Assad.
