From the introduction by Mahmood Fazal:

Even if the skies were shorter than my knees, I would not kneel.- Cyrus the Great

Persian poems scar the back of a man with a shirt over his head. A man in an American prison wears a Keffiyeh while he makes salah. Another stands with an imitation Kalashnikov in front of an olive tree. A stream of iPhone portraits curated by artist Pouria Khojastehpay, under the pseudonym 550BC, complicates criminal and radical identities through the addition of new textures of personality and culture.
