Hassan Hamzeh, 21 year old poet from Esfehan, Iran, waiting for the dye he has put on his hair, eyebrows and moustache to take affect. He dyes them blonde in an effort not to conform in a country he feels represses all individuality. In 2009, Hassan was arrested for leading demonstrations against the government in protests that followed the disputed re-election of president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Photo by Tom Jamieson.
