New Zealand photojournalist Amos Chapple provided Boston.com's Big Picture with over two dozen images from inside Iran. The photographer gives us rare glimpses of everyday life in the nation. Big Picture reports:
"Chapple "was amazed by the difference in western perceptions of the country and what I saw on the ground…" He goes on to say that every traveller he met inside Iran had the same sense of surprise. The government continues its anti-western campaign, but Chapple explains what was once a popular sentiment has long since faded with Iranians. Chapple describes this as a "constant embarrassment for ordinary Iranians. In the time I spent there, I never received anything but goodwill and decency, which stands in clear contrast to my experience in other middle eastern countries."
