17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Era

Mournful and confounded, with tempting salacious lips yet with deteriorating minds, of which a repellent stench of a dying thought comes to one’s olfactory. How and why they all have descended from eminence to decadence is another story. This twisted downfall, however, is accompanied by degradation of once respected values, cultures, and thoughts, to a beyond-repair level. And we have all experienced the repugnant taste of this downfall in recent years. Particularly, there is the reversal related to the behavior and interaction with women which constitutes that we announce a shift from “patriarchy” to “anti-womanism”! These photos, are indicators of drowned and effete women form an anti-women society who substitute thought with lust. A vortex which will lead to ever-lasting frivolity. In this project, inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci, Miss Afarin Sajedi, and my point of view, I have tried to illustrate a prospect of the contemporary women in our society. (It should be noted that we used frozen-fish from the fish market, no living animals were harmed)
