A Story in Pictures by Shahrzad Darafsheh

Thirty-six year old artist and photographer Shahrzad Darafsheh takes observers on her own personal journey dealing with Cancer in Tehran.

“This book operates on several levels; as a chronicle of her journey through a sickness, an object made of various materials of different opacities evoking the fragility of skin, obscuring and revealing life’s scars. As an experiment in storytelling – when read in Farsi, from right to left, the result is very different from that which an English reader will experience: it is a bilingual project that provides a view into life in a country which many of us have no knowledge of, or visibility into.”
