HODA KATEBI | هدی کاتبی  + Political fashion blogger & organizer + Author & photographer, Tehran Streetstyle + Chicago-based angry daughter of immigrants فارسیم افتضاح است


Resist, always. ✊ Photographed at a #blacklivesmatter protest in Chicago last year. I always like photographing protests in black and white because it reminds people of the past. We've done this shit before. There is so much to learn from the Black, Muslim, and Indigenous resistance history of this land, and of anticolonial movements globally. Talk to your parents and grandparents, read, and love your people. Understand what you're seeing is not new: that is is related to people seeing the "both sides" of Israeli apartheid, that and that this existed long before and will exist long after Trump, and that you're going to need more than liberal ideas (free speech/dialogue bullshit) to destroy white supremacy.

Ayyy Tehran Streetstyle is now also available in my favorite Iranian political fashion designer's online site! Woot woot! Peep @hushi5's store Silk Road Super to cop you a copy! ✨

One of the first line of poetry I memorized in Farsi: هر کسی کاو دور ماند از اصل خویش باز جوید روزگار وصل خویش Translation: Anyone pulled from their source / longs to return. This is one of my favorite photos from my second trip to Iran: endless stretches of mountainside in northern Iran overlooking a group of couples getting ready for a quick tea break. ✨

Excited for LA next week (!!) but I need me some Middle Eastern sunshine asap ✨/ photo: @harzyyoussef
