Shirin Neshat on a Taxi

The plastic tents on the top of New York city taxis are usually reserved for instantly forgettable ads for travel destinations, movies, and strip clubs. But if you look closely these days, you just might catch a glimpse of some fine art photography. Having kept my eyes peeled for days, I finally saw the images by Shirin Neshat on a cab today.

I had to run out into the middle of the street to get a picture of the other side of the banner; the people in the throng of cars and trucks waiting nearby must have thought I was completely insane.

More background can be found in the NY Times here.
