Captions: ‘We Will Make America Face A Severe Defeat’, Tehran

After hiking the perimeter wall of the ‘American Den of Espionage’ (the old embassy of the US of A), seeing all of the CCTV cameras at five metre intervals, the ‘No Photography’ signs, and the guards standing at each corner with AK47 rifles, I decided that it was just too damn photogenic to let the opportunity pass me by. These days it’s the HQ of the Sepah militia (the Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution). With sweaty palms, I dodged between Sycamore trees and took this picture.
