HANNA JARZABEK    -  Photography & Multimedia Storytelling


"At first glance" is a series that shows my first impressions of the Iranian street. The series was taken during a trip to Iran in May 2008.

In my travels I try not only to photograph new places and new faces but also to get to know the situation of people and the conditions in which they live; above all I am interested in human beings and their emotions. Street photography allows to capture the first impressions of a place and people. For me it is also a good introductory sketch of a society.

In this series I focused especially on Iranian women, as in general the situation of women in Muslim societies intrigues me and attracts my attention. I completed this series with photographs of soldiers and details related to the leaders of the Iranian Revolution in an attempt to embed the portrait of Iranian women into the socio-political dimension of the country.
