“Everyday Iran”, inspired by “Everyday Africa”, is the most widespread mobile photography project based on social networks in Iran which started since early in 2014.
We in Everyday Iran ask the whole people who live and work in Iran to send us their photos of daily life in the country with #everydayiran. Those photos which are selected by 5 Iranian curators are reposted on our social media pages.
By displaying mobile phone images from our day-to-day lives we hope to work against the stereotypes and visual tropes that are so prevalent about the region in the mainstream media.
These photos show our life styles, our culture, touristy and historic sites and religious places. Wholly, they reflect social realities of Iran.
However it's a young project, it has turned into a national movement with more than 15,000 active photographer from more than 1000 cities and 30 provinces in Iran and has reached more than 2,000,000 viewers per month from all around the world.
With 79% Foreign viewers, Everyday Iran has the most global viewers among Iranian visual media.
