MoCP's Burnt Generation: Contemporary Iranian Photography exhibition is in its final weeks - check out the companion digital exhibition, Simorgh, curated by WBEZ Worldview analyst Narimon Safavi - http://bit.ly/1WCaxAC
Just as modern Iran, as depicted by this exhibition may at times seem melancholic or even depressed to the uninitiated eyes; to those aware of the Iranian history , the people of the country may seem quietly resilient and have a subdued confidence of a three millenia old culture of survivors.
