Ey! Iran: Contemporary Iranian Photography
21cm x 21cm. 28 pages. Illustrated wrappers.
“In Ey! Iran, social realities of hope, temptation, nostalgia and introspection are captured through the Persian lens. The exhibition depicts a culture surprisingly familiar to ours – narratives of family life, suburban sprawl and poignant observations on a country immersed in longstanding customs and traditions. The artists take on issues of identity, gender and social restrictions and by doing so capture a side of Iran which is often contrary to that presented by the Pentagon and the western media. Catalogue of exhibition held at the Gold Coast City Art Gallery in 2006. Artists include; Dadbeh Bassir, Shadi Ghadirian, Amirali Ghasemi, Mohammad Ghazali, Arash Hanaei, Ghazale Hedayat, Peyman Houshmandzadeh, Bahman Jalali, Hana Mirjanian, Reza Paydari, Leila Pazooki, Sadegh Tirafkan, Hamila Vakili, Hossein & Angela Valamanesh and Mohsen Yazdipour.”
