Iran Photographer’s Exhibition in Paris

A solo photo exhibition by Iranian photographer Kiarang Alaei is underway in Paris until December 29.
Titled ‘Semi-Permeable’, the photo collection introduces social interactions and relations among people of Gilan, a province in northern Iran, Honaronline reported.
“Most of the photos come with a cutline explaining about the pictures as well as Gilan culturology,” Alaei said.
Although Gilan is known for its beautiful and colorful natural landscapes, the photos are black and white. “Gilan is always pictured in color in our minds, but I wanted to break this image and give my personal view to the land in the photos,” he said.
In a statement on the show, the curator of the exhibit Laurent Quenehen has said, “I tried to make a selection among his many photographs. They are all very sweet and powerful, framed with a lot of accuracy and adequate light”.
The trilingual book of the exhibit including all the photos and their captions has been published by Ilia Publications and Gilan Art Bureau. The book, in Persian, English and French, was unveiled at the opening of the exhibit in Paris on December 21 and will be distributed in Iran next month.
A self-educated photographer, Alaei, 40, is a member of the National Iranian Photographers’ Society (NIPS). He has held several photo exhibitions in Tehran and Mashhad, been a jury member of various photography festivals and published many books.
