Iran Revisited: photographs by Sanaz Mazinani at Toronto Image Works Gallery

Scale, Amol

Exhibition: May 1 to June 6, 2009
Opening Reception: Friday, May 8th from 6 - 8 PM

Courtesy of Stephen Bulger Gallery



Sanaz Mazinani's colour diptychs and marquee photographs explore the physical landscape and human faces of contemporary Iran, her country of origin. Each image contains its own narrative qualities and together they create a complex portrait of the country. From painted portraits of young martyrs slowly peeling from the exterior walls of mosques, to a still life of the architectural remnants of the Persian Empire, these photographs depict the different ideologies that overlap in Iran's contemporary landscape.
Curated by Bonnie Rubenstein, Director of Contact Toronto Photography Festival.
