Stamps of a Revolution

This series documents a collection of stamps from letters and packages received from family in Iran while living in exile as a child. The images enabled me to have a direct connection to Iran, a place I longed to know. In 2017 I was invited to Iran to exhibit the series, returning to Iran for the first time in 38 years.
