The modern faces of Iran

Woman who had a nose job in Isfahan, Iran

In Iran women are not allowed to show their body, but they don't have to hide their faces. For the modern Iranian women this means their face has to be perfect. Progressive women use a lot of cosmetics and, if they have money, visit a plastic surgeon to fix their noses. Even if you already have a pretty nose, people are willing to pay a lot of money for surgery. A plaster on your nose is a status symbol, people wear it with pride.

I visited Iran in November 2013 and portrayed modern Iranians.
