Here are the results of photographing this year’s Ash Wednesday for my series, Unto Dust.
I have been photographing Ash Wednesday in Midtown Manhattan for 16 years, starting in 1997. It is a slow process photographing for this series only one day a year. I am inspired to continue this series by the outward display of faith that the wearing of ashes is about.
Iranian photographer Hossein Fatemi, offers a glimpse of an entirely different side to Iran than the image usually broadcasted by domestic and foreign media. In his photo series An Iranian Journey, many of the photographs reveal an Iran that most people never see, presenting an eye-opening look at the amazing diversity and contrasts that exist in the country.
