behold

Hoda Afshar in an Iranian photographer current living in Melbourne, Australia. Her latest series is titled “Behold” and it’s absolutely stunning.

“Behold” was shot in a small town in Iran that mostly leaves its gay residents alone… on one condition: that they keep their sexuality a secret.

A group of men invited Afshar inside the town’s male bathhouse to document their lives. The series first opened at Centre for Contemporary Photography, Melbourne, and is now showing at Horsham Regional Gallery through May 14.
