For those of you who are #bae and follow on the snap, you might remember the story from ages ago--running around on one of the hottest days in Chicago equipped with Kevin the photographer (I'm proud to announce I finally can pronounce his name correctly, unlike in the snaps), my brothers who came to visit for the weekend, and Persian food (you know, that force that makes the world go round).
Excited to finally share some of these images + favorite spots in the city with you and hereby officially announce the 7hrs of shooting to be deemed worth it. Brownbook is one of my favorite magazines and so being able to be featured alongside beautifully talented Middle Eastern creatives from around the world is up there on the list almost next to Persian food. (almost).
While this issue hasn't made it's way to the USA just yet, the Brownbook team let me share a few images with you they sent over.

Thanks again to Kevin, Marziah, and Natasha for all your work shooting, interviewing, and making this happen! Much love to the Brownbook team.
