Censorship In the Republic

How foreign media are filtered in Iran

In the September 2013 issue of Harper’s Magazine, now with subscribers and on newsstands, we published photographs, shot inside the Republic of Iran, under the byline Anonymous. Included were two pictures showing censored images from foreign magazines. Below are nineteen photos of images that were altered in different publications, whether by Iranian authorities or by magazine sellers hoping to stay out of trouble with the authorities.
