Lost Identity

  • Photographer
    Gita Montazer

In a country with traditional and patriarchal society and laws, the acceptance of women as second sex and the forced veil (Hijab) along with the popularity of appearance-oriented attitude through the cyberspace have all led to women. They do not have a positive understanding of their appearance. Some of them have confusion about their identity. Therefore, they often suffer from lack of self-confidence. At the same time,they are extremely inclined to perform numerous cosmetic surgeries and inappropriate make-up and use of heterogeneous jewelry. Perhaps they are trying to find a new identity.

I am a photographer originally from Iran. I was born in Tehran. I have B.A. in Photography and graduated in 2002. I participated in some group exhibitions and have had a solo exhibition in Iran/Tehran. During these years I have managed to create my own style in subjects I have been concern about. I love portrait, landscape and travel photography and often use my imagination through Photoshop to create imaginary pictures.
