"Iran - Unveiled" 29Apr~8May 2013 at The Arts House at The Old Parliament
1 Old Parliament Lane, Singapore, Singapore 179429




After 7 years of floating around Europe, the USA, Australia and parts of Asia, the NUS Middle East Institute is proud to present their first ever photo exhibition featuring the works of a local photographer, Zann Huizhen Huang who travels regularly to various parts of the Middle East. Iran~UnVeiled, spanning a period of 5 years, allows visitors to see the realities of life in Iran from the Caspian Sea region to the Persian Gulf. Zann has taken considerable risks as a solo female photographer to gain access to people and places in Iran that are prohibited to local women. Zann has also shared her escapades in Iran at TedX KL 2012.

ABOUT ZANN

Zann Huizhen Huang began her first serious foray into photojournalism after the tsunami in January 2005. She has covered humanitarian and socio-political issues in Iran, Iraq, Israel and the Palestinian Territories, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, China, Turkey, Tunisia, Thailand and the Philippines. Her images have been published in Time magazine, Le Monde, Geo Italia, L’expresso and other publications in the US, Europe and Asia.

Her works have garnered various awards such as the UNICEF Photographer of the Year 2007 (Honourable Mention) and Le Grand Prix Care Internationaledu Reportage Humanitaire Award 2007 - Top 5 finalists.

Zann has also spoken about her self-initiated and self-funded projects at TEDx Singapore 2012 and about her photo documentation of Iran at TEDx Kuala Lumpur 2012.

Zann has also covered “Mental Health Issues” in Singapore and was featured in the Asia Exposed 2 series in late Sept 2011 on Channel News Asia which won a silver medal in the Best Social Issues/Current Affairs category at the New York Festival International TV and Film Awards 2012.
