‘Many commentators have said that some of the most exciting photography in the world today is being made in Iran,’ says Candlestar Director Fariba Farshad, who has curated Burnt Generation, Candlestar’s new exhibition of Iranian Photography. ‘We hope that this exciting exhibition will confirm this view...’ Burnt Generation, which will run at Somerset House from 10 April to 1 June 2014, brings together work by eight contemporary photographers that has rarely been seen outside Iran. The photographers are Azadeh Akhlaghi; Gohar Dashti; Shadi Ghadirian; Babak Kazemi; Abbas Kowsari; Ali Nadjian/Ramyar Manouchehrzadeh; Newsha Tavakolian and Sadegh Tirafkan.

By presenting rarely-seen work by these photographers, Burnt Generation presents an opportunity to move to a place beyond cliche; a moment to forget the stereotypical images of Iran and enter the distinctive personal, cultural histories of these highly original and intellectually engaged image makers.

Burnt Generation is the first of a series of major photography events that Candlestar will produce in the lead up to the opening of the inaugural edition of Photo London


The Terrace Rooms, Somerset House, The Strand
