Three exhibitions in Tehran are paying tribute to the late filmmaker and photographer Abbas Kiarostami (1940-2016) to mark his birth anniversary (June 22).
E1 Art Gallery opened a group photography exhibition on Friday to honor the celebrated auteur.
With Nader Davoudi as curator, the exhibit is hosting photos by 37 photographers, Mehr News Agency reported on its Persian website. 
Titled “Single Tree,” the event borrows its name and subject from a recurrent theme in Kiarostami’s photos. Many of his films depict images of trees in beautiful long shots, beside his other favorite images: rain and roads.
