An exhibition of photos by Mahdi Razavi will open at Seyhoun Art Gallery in Tehran on August 25.
Titled ‘Adrift’, the exhibit will showcase 11 photos taken in Zhejiang, a province near the East China Sea, Honaronline reported.
The capital, Hangzhou, is the site of picturesque West Lake, with many islands and gardens. Wuzhen is notable among the province’s ancient water towns, with stone bridges, restored historic districts and waterways fed by the Grand Canal.
Photos have been taken in Lishui, a city in the southwest of Zhejiang. It is well known in China for its long history and beautiful landscapes.
“The region has pristine nature probably because few tourists visit there. Lishui literally means ‘beautiful water’. The name is given to the city because a beautiful river crosses the area. I had seen its pictures so I decided to travel there for about a month,”  Razavi said.
A member of Iranian Photography Association, Razavi has participated in more than 50 exhibitions in and outside Iran and also held photographic workshops in Iran.
He has attended several festivals in Ukraine, Scotland, Vietnam, the US, the UK, China, Japan, Slovenia, Italy, Poland and Australia and won prizes including the Gold Medal of Excellence at the 19th Australian TrierenBerg Festival, 2010; gold medal at 70th Asahi Shimbun Festival in Japan, 2009; an honorary mention at the 40th Slovakia FotoForum Festival, 2009; and FIAP Blue Ribbon at the Edinburgh Festival in Scotland, 2009.
The exhibit will remain open until September 9 at Seyhoun Gallery located at No. 11, 4th St., Vozara Ave.
