The piece I am submitting is called, 1446 Lashes. This artwork consists of a series of portraits taken at an underground party in Shiraz, Iran. The portraits are accompanied by a letter-pressed print which quotes the penal code of Iran, in which it states various laws that enforce lashes. Each portrait is stamped with the number of lashes they owe, and the title is the total amount of lashes owed within the 6 portraits. The remainder is the amount of lashings I am owed. All of the pictures have been censored using an analog method in the darkroom. I have chosen to censor the images to maintain the political security of the people involved.
6 silver gelatin prints, 1 Letter-pressed. All of which are framed and mounted.
Dimensions including the spacing within the frames is :
