Kabul – Teheran: READOUT OF THE TWO CAPITALS
June 29th – 29th July 2018, Shalman Gallery, Teheran, IRAN

Curated by Fatimah Hossaini and Dr. Pejman Dadkhah

The ancient people believe that a quarter of four quarters of the Earth is inhabited, and three quarters of the water is flooded, and this quarter, called the fourth quarter of the city, from the north to the eastern line of the Seventh Line, and each part is called the climate. In every climate there is a civilization in which the kings of this property love it, and as every one of the ten droves, they glow upon it, and the kings also wage war on other parts. In each cases, the distance between each border is one step increments, and at every step there is an experience that can’t be at all. So the steps of the face of the image move and each one picks up his own image and sets it on to the other. And far from the rulers of the kings, they display the image of their climate in front of our eyes to experiment with this terrain in two climates. – Dr. Mohammad Reza Sharifzade / May 2018

Ten Afghan photographers and ten Iranian photographers with the view that each photographer shows a shot from his capital city ; These images can put the artist in the form of a painter who portrays a picture of a city, and this image can be a photographic documentary of Kabul’s streets, and perhaps a portrait of a scene or a picture in a more conceptual way.
