The exhibition 165 Years of Iranian Photography is part of the 2nd annual Photoquai 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.
