FREE / Book HERE
Continuing the ongoing series of free MPF artist talks, Martin Parr Foundation present an evening with Amak Mahmoodian. Mahmoodian will launch her new photobook - Zanjir - published by RRB Photobooks and IC Visual Lab, 2019.
In Zanjir, Mahmoodian's photographs, taken from 2002 to 2019 in both Iran and the UK, draw on imagery from the Golestan archives in Tehran. The publication presents a conversation imagined between the artist and the Persian princess and memoirist, Taj Saltaneh, addressing loss, separation, family and homeland.
This event is a part of the Martin Parr Foundation's series of free talks, providing a platform for emerging photographers to share and discuss their practice, supported by WEX Photo Video.
