Iranian rally Perth / by Matsu Photography

Economic and human rights tensions have boiled over in Iran recently leading to the largest protests in the country for 10 years. These protests have reached far out of Iran and manifested in Perth last week. I was invited down to document the members of the Perth Iranian community take a huge risk and step forward in the face of very real danger from an oppressive government. I can never fully understand the heartache, fear and struggle of those who have lived in and  those that still live in such an environment but I hope my images pass on some insight into a distant event that has left waves on our shore.
