"I just returned from Iran and did some new photos. As I was visiting and shooting  a few  of the Qajar palaces, I couldn't help but wondering about the Qajar harems. Nasseredin Shah Qaiar had about 100 wives. However, only a few were among the favorites, such as Anis Al-Doleh; many were overlooked. I wondered how lonely life must have been for the new brides who were never to be taken seriously. I decided to do a story about one such girl, wondering the palace in search of her place and identity, and dreaming about better tomorrow. I named her Parizad Khanom."  - Niki Koohpaima
