Event Description

“Water and Oil” is a photography exhibit that demonstrates the effects of climate change on Iran, with a particular focus on the intersection of women’s rights and environmentalism. These photographers depict a landscape that is teetering toward water bankruptcy while also showcasing alternative models of caring for the environment through the rituals of the diasporic Afro-Iranian communities in Balochistan and the islands off the Strait of Hormuz.
