​A Glimpse Within is a photography series I did back in Tehran in 2009. I started to photograph more than 50 women's bags from different generations and observed the items they carry. The final collection was 20 sets of photos. Every layout includes three photos: the bag, stuff inside the bag, and a photo of each woman's ID card. In this study, I dealt with the juxtaposition of public and private life in a metaphoric way. Additionally, through the images of ID cards, I wanted to visualize how the government enforced a uniform image of Iranian women in Hijab.
