Radiograph of a Family

Firouzeh Khosrovani, Iran & Norway

I am the product of Iran’s endless struggle between traditionalism and modernization. As a child I saw how my mother became a committed Muslim, a model citizen of the Islamic Republic. She observes the Hijab and went to religious pilgrimages while my father, a devote secularist, never stopped asking her to take off her headscarf. Radiograph of a Family is a personal account of my family's turbulent experiences with westernization and Islam. My story takes us from the Shah’s time, to the Islamic revolution and the hardships during the Iran-Iraq war, until the present day; all under one roof in a house in Tehran.
