We will talk about lots of things including Mr. Neil Smith the British Virgin Islands’ Finance Secretary, photographed here in his office in Road Town, Tortola. The BVI is one of the world’s most important offshore financial service centers and the world leader for incorporating companies. There are more then 800,000 companies based in the BVIs but only 28,000 inhabitants. The BVIs are the second-biggest direct investors in China, just after Hong Kong. http://fhochdrei.org/en/event/artist-talk-with-paolo-woods/ @gabrielegalimbertiphoto #taxhaven #theheavens #berlin #talk #germany🇩🇪 #bvi #tax #taxevasion #inequality #fhochdrei #exibition #photography

He has the Great Wall tattooed on a cheek and other Chinese symbols on his back. In the 2008, the year the Beijing hosted the Olympics, he decided to get olympic rings tattooed on his forehead and the 5 Olympic mascots on his neck. He thought this would have helped him find a work but most people flee him and think he is a foreigner. #tattoo #beijing #china #olympics

But it is also an industry that gives work to one Iranian out of ten and is in constant search for new products and markets. It is possible to find in Tehran’s bazaar high quality carpets (eighty knots per square centimeter) that have very little of the traditional patterns. The one in the photo is sold, under the counter, for about 2000$. #iran #carpet #tehran #cheasy #nude #trashart

He is here shooting ‘In the Wind’s Eye’, a 52-hour epic for Iranian television. With a budget of $12 million, it is one of the biggest projects in Iranian film history. It follows three generations of Iranians from the 1920’s through to the present day. #iran #tehran #filming #onset #moviemaking #antitrump #resisttrump #irandeal #resist #notmypresident
