Photograph, Photograph, from the series Like EveryDay

This is a Photograph. It was photographed by Shadi Ghadirian.

This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco as part of Contemporary Muslim Fashions.

Its medium is chromogenic print on paper.


Shadi Ghadirian’s Like EveryDay series was made in response to her then-impending marriage and explored her concerns about married life and the repetitive daily tasks she feared would come to define her identity. In each photograph, a female figure is draped in a colorful patterned chador of the type typically worn at home, and further obscured by objects that typify domestic duties.

There are restrictions for re-using this image. For more information, visit the Smithsonian’s Terms of Use page.
