The collection contains twelve photos out of the 140 Kiarostami has taken over the past 4 years. The photos are large as they portray nature. The displayed works are not being offered for sale.
Each photo on display at the gallery depicts a window through which the image of a charming landscape has been captured. All the photos displayed are untitled, allowing the visitors the opportunity to have their own understanding of them.
