In a sentence: An online monthly magazine in Farsi and English featuring a project by a different contemporary Iranian photographer.

Dide hasn't been active for over a year now, but the 15 issues in its archives remain a great entry into contemporary Iranian photography. Issues are translated to English; look for the link in the upper left corner to switch to the English version once you've opened an issue. The project featured in each issue is accompanied by a text on the work; contributors include a range of international critics and photographers. The stated mission of the magazine is to "depict the variety that identifies contemporary photography."

Dide Photography Magazine can be found on Facebook and Twitter.
