Photograph by Michael Yamashita @yamashitaphoto - an 18 year old Muslim woman in Minab, Iran, wears a traditional form of hijab unique to this part of the world. This photograph was the cover of the May 2001 issue of National Geographic Magazine, the cover of my book on Marco Polo and is one of the prints in my upcoming show on The Silk Road Journey, opening at the Jimmy Carter Library in Atlanta, Georgia on Monday, March 20. Hope to see you there. #silkroad #minab #bandarabbas #iran #hijabfashion #hijab @thesilkroadjourney @natgeocreative @thephotosociety @natgeotravel

    @mrfpister she looks black to me too. :) IDK much about Iran. Either way, why do many muslim women hide so much of their face? Like, cmon, your beautiful. Let it show. Being modest doesn't have to mean hiding all of who you are.
