Striking portraits redefine the stereotypes about Iranian fathers and daughters

Photographer Nafise Motlaq recently set out on a mission to prove that not all Iranian fathers are the same. 
Currently living in Malaysia, Motlaq grew tired of how her native Iran is frequently characterized. “After living far from my homeland for several years, I found that people generally have stereotyped opinions about Iran and Iranians due to what mainstream media feed them,” she told Mic. 
Following her own father’s bout with a serious illness and a visit home after several years abroad, she was inspired to shoot the “Fathers and Daughters” series.
