Opening at Aaran Gallery in Tehran on December 12, 2012.
Look by Newsha Tavakolian
This time, closer than ever and in my own house, I fixed my camera on a tripod; in front of the window where I'd watched the same view of the city for ten years, a city that I don't know if I love or not. A window that opens on to many other windows that are all closed and I cannot see into. This is the story of others. The others that I know and their stories. I have captured moments from their stories in this room and within the frame of a window that looks upon the cold and hazy view of My City. - Newsha Tavakolian
At the same time an earlier series of work of Newsha Tavakolian, titled "Mother's of Martyrs" is on display among a selection of photography from Middle East at Victoria and Albert Museum London.
The V&A's latest photography exhibition studies the ways in which artists from across the Middle East, spanning North Africa to Central Asia, investigate the language and techniques of photography. The works range from documentary photographs and highly staged tableaux to images manipulated beyond recognition. The variety of approaches is appropriate to the complexities of a vast and diverse region.
