'If nineteenth-century Iranian women discovered time travel, where would they go? What would they bring back?  Photographer Shadi Ghadirian did not have these questions in mind,  per se, but she is interested in how the Western world perceives Iranian  woman like herself. In her photography series “Qajar,” she brings out  the cognitive dissonance that someone unfamiliar with Iran may  experience, as well as comments about the position of women in society  today.’
