A Look Inside the Lives of Everyday Iranian Youth

Photojournalist by trade, Hossein Fatemi started his career in 1997 and has since worked across the globe, collecting accolades like the UNICEF Photo of the Year Award and POYI Award of Excellence. In the past, Fatemi has documented the civil war in Somalia, the war-torn landscapes of Afghanistan, and life after the divide of Kurdistan. In this set of images shot for The New York Times and shown via MASHKULTURE, Fatemi focused his lens on the youth of Iran as they congregated in snooker halls, shisha bars and music venues, embracing a mix of local and Western social customs in one of the world’s oldest civilizations.
