Check out these cool photos and textiles by Iranian artist Sarah Rahbar. I love photos like this where it makes you think about the state of the world, yet is so beautiful. Check out her Myspace (link below) to see more of of her work. I remember growing up as an American -Iranian as a child and getting teased by a douche who remains nameless in the 4th through 8th grade. He used call me a terrorist and throw eraser “bombs” at me in class. And the teacher would do nothing because his father was in the town council or some crap like that. Basically, that kid could get away with anything. Then high school came and they sent him off to some private school ( thankfully for me, but what a waste of money for the parents). The last photo reminded me of that time. I don’t know what happened to that kid… I should google him and send him a virtual middle finger… is there a site for that?
