Pop Art, a set on Flickr.

This pop Art series is in fact a single conceptual work of Art disguised as a Pop Art Series. The images are from found images that were manipulated to represent an aspect of the state of the Iranian society before the revolution and I have used the word pop as a pun for the country blowing up into that revolution. Just as important as the image is the title. The title is a single lined comment or if you like a poem that captures the essence of the social message, and in some cases it simply represent the mood that existed in lyrics and the spirit of the people of the time. a people so different from today that one can image that it was a lost nation .
