Setah Panjha Three concentric "panj"es, or "five"s in Farsi. — "The Tehran Revolutionary Court has sentenced three young Baha’is to five years in prison. The formal charges include “acting against national security through membership to the Baha’i deviant sect” and “spreading lies” — but the deciding factor was that they had let others know of the injustice to which they had been subjected. The three, Rouhieh Safajou, Tara Houshmand and Sarmad Shadabi, were denied a university education in 2015. They were arrested in March 2016 without being told why. The defendants’ lawyers were informed of the verdict on November 4, 2017. They plan to appeal." Aida Ghanjar for IranWire, November 14, 2017  Malik Jahan; my great great grandmother was the queen of the world.  Malik Jahan, the name of my great great grandmother and literally, "queen of the world."  Baba ab dod. Maman chi dod? Dad brought water. The first sentence any child learning to read and write Farsi will learn.  Mom brought agency, conviction, and strength of character. The often unspoken legacy of women I come from.

What a time to be alive, Photogravure, 2016

Photogravure is a 19th century printmaking technique that involves exposing a photographic positive onto gelatin tissue, transferring the exposed issue onto a copper plate, and etching the image into the plate in various densities of ferric chloride baths. The entire process takes about three days of work to produce a plate, plus about 20 minutes to print each image, not including drying time. Snapchat is a digital medium in which images exist for up to 10 second increments for 24 hours at a time.
