Les Boutographies 2015 : Laurence Rasti, There are no homosexuals in Iran The 2015 Jury Prize – The Eye of Photography




Hundreds of Iranian homosexual refugees transit by Denizli, a small Turkish town, where they put their lives on hold while waiting to find a country where they can freely live their sexuality. In this context of uncertainty, where anonymity is the best protection, this work questions the fragile notion of identity and gender. It tries to give back to these people an image that their country has momentarily stolen.
