Humans of Iran

With political tensions high, the people of Iran are losing their voice in the world, and are seen the same as their government. In 2015, the Humans of New York photographer Brandon Stanton went to Iran to exemplify some of those voices.

The clerics of Iran, for better or worse, are synonymous with the government. Their “party line” is the mirror image of their Western counterparts: “The American people are a good people,” he says. “We have a problem with the American government.”
