September 22nd - November 29th
here for a list of other photography exhibitions in Paris
The exhibition 165
Years of Iranian Photography is part of the 2nd
Festival organized by the Musee du Quai Branly.
The exhibition gives a brief outline of early photography in
the country before turning its attention to photography during and
after the 1979 revolution.
Photography in Iran really blossomed in the
1920-1960s then almost stopped, until the revolution - it was an
important part of the revolution and beyond. Now is another big time
for Iranian photographers, because they now have access to the
internet, and can see images from elsewhere.
About 30 years after the Islamic revolution 20
years after the end of the Iran-Iraq war, Iranian photography has
emerged as a mainstream gender.
