Imagine this:
Instead of waiting in her tower, Rapunzel slices off her long, golden hair with a carving knife, and then uses it to climb down to freedom.
Just as she’s about to take the poison apple, Snow White sees the familiar wicked glow in the old lady’s eyes, and slashes the evil queen’s throat with a pair of sewing scissors.
Cinderella refuses everything but the glass slippers from her fairy godmother, crushes her stepmother’s windpipe under her heel, and the Prince falls madly in love with the mysterious girl who dons rags and blood-stained slippers.

Imagine this:
Persephone goes adventuring with weapons hidden under her dress.
Persephone climbs into the gaping chasm.
Or, Persephone uses her hands to carve a hole down to hell.
In none of these versions is Persephone’s body violated unless she asks Hades to hold her down with his horse-whips.
Not once does she hold out on eating the pomegranate, instead biting into it eagerly and relishing the juice running down her chin, staining it red.
In some of the stories, Hades never appears and Persephone rules the underworld with a crown of her own making.
In all of them, it is widely known that the name Persephone means Bringer of Destruction.

Imagine this:
Red Riding Hood marches from her grandmother’s house with a bloody wolf pelt.
Medusa rights the wrongs that have been done to her.
Eurydice breaks every muscle in her arms climbing out of the land of the dead.

Imagine this:
Girls are allowed to think dark thoughts, and be dark things.

Imagine this:
Instead of the dragon, it’s the princess with claws and fiery breath
who smashes her way from the confines of her castle
and swallows men whole.

I am homesick for a place I am not sure even exists. One where my heart is full. My body loved. And my soul understood.

Gohar DashtiToday’s Life and War 

Artist Statement: This series emerges from my experiences of the eight-year Iran-Iraq war, how this violence symbolically influences the emotional life of my generation, it gives us the fear that facing images of war on television and in the city through the walls.

This body of work represents war and its heritage how it permeates all aspects of contemporary society by depicting a couple in a fictionalized battlefield as they interact in everyday life for instance, watching television, surfing  the Internet and celebrating their wedding.

While my couple does not visibly express emotion, they nevertheless have a power of perseverance, determination and survival. I create moments that capture ongoing duality of life and war without precluding hope.

Gohar Dashti received her M.A in Photography from the Fine Art University of Tehran in 2005. She has developed a practice concerning social issues with particular references to history and culture in modern society.

*Disclaimer: I posted this back in May, but a keyword search on Tumblr revealed that there STILL hasn’t been enough love and attention shown to Dashti’s work. She deserves support for trying to bring a sense of humour to the strength and resilience with which people carry on their every-day lives during the insanity of war and occupation… ala Time That Remains
