The youth of Iran

August 15, 2008

It may not seem unusual. Just a regular Metallica fan, right?

The fact that this fan is in Iran is what interested me. This image is part of Nima AliBeiglou’s series on the youth of Iran, a newsworthy subject given the interest in the country and their war of words with the West.

Hi, I think Nima is a good photographer with a good eye on Iran, I’m sure he can be better in future if try to work with a profesional news or pix wire.

 

I hope your readers don’t mistakenly take Iran as a country that you can put anything that you want. sometimes some fashion/brand clothes can bring you trouble in Islamic Iran. Un-Islamic or immodest dress code has been subject to detainment by police force.

 

Corinne Perkins, the opening lines of your article really made me chuckle! I think you should get out a bit more before opening an article with the following: “It may not seem unusual. Just a regular Metallica fan, right?

The fact that this fan is in Iran is what interested me”.
ha ha ha. Some people’s undimensional view of the world is hilarious!

I must agree with the above poster. Sad.

 

“The fact that this fan is in Iran is what interested me.”

The fact that the above fact ‘is what interested you’ made me lose hope in humanity.

I’m not sure why the poster of this is getting slammed here. Maybe I’m just not “cultured” enough to get why this is such a “bad” photo. I actually like it! I’m a huge Metallica fan. Goin to the concert at Allstate Arena in 2 weeks. They have fans worldwide. It’s so awesome. Good photo ^^
