In life, a man must either become angelic or human or animal. I have become none of these things.
Crime Wave Tehran by Pouria Khojastehpay was compiled through individual submissions, research in Iranian media archives, and social media.
This book provides a glimpse behind the curtain of state-censorship and takes a closer look into the world of organized crime in Iran. A subject considered taboo in Iran and unheard of amongst many Iranians.
From battle scars and prayers to criminal tattoos and blood spilled for gold, the Iranian criminals are united by a life in between crime and their devotion to Shia Islam.
With an essay by Mahmood Fazal
