Tehran - the boring and the mundane in photos

Mightier Than has two galleries of everyday photos from Tehran. They include the boring and the mundane, the usual and the occasional - sights from around a city of more than 7 million people.

Iran was already a misunderstood place before this election captured the world’s attention, and as much as the world has now learned about Iran from witnessing these past few weeks, the experience might still lead to an even greater misunderstanding unless we take the time to look deeper. Lost behind the chants of inspiring crowds, the images of bloodied faces, or the grainy chaotic videos, is an Iran much of the world has likely never made the effort to notice.

Highlights include:

  • a night-time view of Melli tower
  • an aerial view of housing
  • fast food restaurants
  • a bowling alley
  • an ATM
  • snow on a car
  • people on the Metro

A great selection of photos that show there is more to Iran than conflict, demonstrations and protests.
