Work by Iranian photographer Farhad Berahman exploring the predicament of Iranian exiles, uncertain of their past and their future.
Verified by identity documents we are categorised, divided and restricted through a legalized piece of paper, which evidently proves who we are, our day and country of birth. Passport - an evidence of the nationality you hold locally and internationally.
Every year thousands of Iranians flock to the UK legally and illegally to seek asylum for various reasons: as ardent advocates of democracy, because of a lack of press freedom, gender inequality, religious differences, sexuality etc. However discarding the evidence of your birth origin and assimilating into another foreign identity is not only onerous but leaves you stuck at a cross roads belonging neither here nor there.
These powerful photographs explore the predicament of Iranian exiles, uncertain of their past and their future.
