Destiny IV

“Destiny IV explores identity and rooting. Destiny translates to “Sarnevesht” in Farsi which literally means written on the head. 

This project borrows from the experiences of diaspora artists and activists as part of a larger conversation about the presumed identity of subjects coming from historically marginalized backgrounds. 

These participants shared their experiences of past and present during my photography session, and they chose the phrases they were photographed with based on their lived experiences.
