“Inherit the regression” is a photomontage project which is comparing Iran 1970s Vs Iran 2018! Iran before the Islamic Revolution of 1979 was quite a different country from the one we see today. It was secular, Western-oriented and allowed a certain amount of cultural freedom. It might be shocking today, but women of that time also took a modern approach when it came to fashion. They would dress up just like their Western counterparts and would even show some skin. Today the women’s dress code in Iran is way more conservative than back in the ‘70s; now, they need to cover their hair, necks, and arms. Nevertheless, Iranian women are generally stylish and tend to choose colorful outfits.
