Ali Mobasser

Afsaneh Box III | 2014

This is the life story of Afsaneh Mobasser told through official identifications and school reports. It travels back through her life of exile in the UK to her childhood years in Iran.

Apart from her travel photo-card which she kept in her purse, the rest of the documents were neatly compiled in a box Afsaneh kept in her closet.
