Persian Visions

 

continued

Less melancholy photos invoking children include Shahrokh Ja'fari's Child's View series. Taken at ant level, the works contrast sharply focused foregrounds with a blurry background containing a monument or outdoor structure. The pictures suggest a mixed sense of whimsy and a focus on the here and now. Some of the photos depict interiors of Iranian homes, mirroring in miniature the exhibition's power to offer a look inside contemporary Iranian sensibilities.

The works are on display through December 30.
