You Don’t Die
The Story of Yet Another Iranian Uprising
In collaboration with Le Monde
Curated by Marie Sumalla and Ghazal Golshiri
On September 13, 2022, Mahsa (Jina) Amini, aged 22, was wearing a simple black coat and a black hijab. Yet she was arrested by the morality police for what was deemed inappropriate clothing. The young woman lived in the Kurdish town of Saqqez in northwest Iran, and had traveled to Tehran with her family to visit the city.
While in custody, Mahsa Amini fell into a coma, most likely due to the blows to her head. Her ultimate death sparked rage throughout the country. Internet connections were cut off, WhatsApp and Instagram were blocked, but people connected with each other using software to avoid being tracked. Protestors faced great risks for taking to the streets; there was even the threat of execution. The collection of photographs and videos in this book was initially created for Le Monde’s coverage of the 2022 uprising. It was published on February 15, 2023, to mark the 5-month anniversary of the uprising. The authors of these images, which were mostly taken from social media, are often Iranian citizens who have requested anonymity. The book was published on the occasion of the exhibition Tu ne meurs pas presented at the 35th edition of the International Festival of Photojournalism, Visa pour l’Image in Perpignan.
