Carmignac Gestion Award

Share:

Newsha Tavakolian wins the Carmignac Gestion Photojournalism Award. For reasons of security, the name of the Iranian photographer (1981) had not been revealed till now. This meant that Tavakolian was able to complete her reportage from December 2013 to April 2014 in Iran.  

A society full of contradictions
In her series, the self-taught photographer presents a portrait of the Burnt Generation. Young people in Iran are caught within a society full of contradictions: between emerging modernism, uncompromising religious rules and nostalgia for the old Persian kingdom. Tavakolian's work will be on display at the Chapelles des Beaux Arts in Paris, from November 7 to December 7, 2014. Afterwards, the exhibition will go on tour to London, Frankfurt and Milan.
