Illegal Images (Text by Armindokht Shooshtari):
Illegal Images are set of projects by Tara Inanloo which contain her self-portraits.
“Green Is the Color of Her Kind” and "Let's Do It A Dada" are the most recent projects by her.
Through these pictures she represents the hidden aspect of a life of an Iranian woman that she discovers in herself, the life which is much more complex than what one can see through the media or the produced works which has been represented in the west in the last few years. These images mostly have been produced based on her reaction towards the variety of the matters. She invites the spectator to gaze at her image, to the prohibited body of an Iranian woman. These images will challenge the viewer since she is depicting Iranian women in an entirely different way comparing to what the world has seen through photographs of Iranian photographers till today.
