Calm Amidst Chaos


This photo was taken by Julian Boys, an undergraduate student in the Philosophy department. This photo was taken at the Jameh mosque in Isfahan, Iran in September 2009. 

'I was taking pictures of Jameh mosque in Isfahan when these serene gentlemen asked me to photograph them, which I did happily. This was taken the day after Quds day (the annual government sponsored anti-Israeli rally), which had resulted in protests and violence across the country in the wake of the disputed election. It could have been a world away as these men sat praying in the courtyard.'
