On the occasion of his recent exhibition at O Gallery, Mohammadreza Mirzaei spoke about his work with a focus on his recently published photobook and his two latest exhibitions at O Gallery and No.6 Gallery in Tehran. The two exhibitions with ironic titles “The New Photographs” and “The Newer Photographs” featured photographs that were shot in Iran and abroad, and mainly in public places.
During the artist talk, we took a closer look at Mirzaei’s recent book “Here comes the sun” published by the University of Pennsylvania. The book was designed by Italian graphic designer Filippo Nostri and contained twenty-one photographs, an article by Mirzaei and a text written by curator Carlos Basualdo.
