Addressing the issue of domestic autonomy, Shadi Ghadirian‘s Like Every Day reveals a world of commonplace oppression–specifically in Iran. In the series, the subjects are draped in household fabrics (curtain, tablecloths, bedsheets, etc.) while their faces are obstructed by various household appliances. Although Like Every Day may be analyzing the Muslim world, the whole series seems to will an honest discourse about the “universal” role of women in a modern society.
