Wonder if the husbands in that society get the "Does this chador make my butt look big?" question.

That is really funny. They don't have to worry about smiling, but if they blink, man, they've ruined the whole photo!

Re: Pointless Family Photo

Odds are that the picture is fake. If you are that conservative, odds are you follow the Hadith that prohibits images.

I'm really amazed that no one has been chastised yet for being racially/ethnically/religiously insensitive.

Gotcha! Those poor film manufacturers. Predominantly poor factory workers with few other options for gainful employment. What is this world coming to?

Maybe they have shifted over to photographic paper/chemicals manufacturing. I'd have to guess that more photos are printed now than in the past when film cameras were predominant (if my wife's photo printing consumption is any indication of general trends!).

When we were in Turkey we saw several women who were dressed like this taking pictures of their husbands. Wouldn't that violate the no images rule? I always that it was a "no idolatry" rule meaning that pictures were OK except in a place of worship?

All religions tend to pick and choose day to day and by interpretation/technology/local tradition.

The Koran does not bar images/pictures so technically under the Koran it would be ok. The question is whether the person follows the Hadith (simply, collections of what were oral traditions on the teachings of Mohammed that are not in the Koran) which does bar the making of images.
