Mohammad Domiri Mosque Architectural Photography

The landscapes and architecture of Iran are largely obscured from Western eyes. Fortunately, photographer Mohammad Domiri documents the geometric wonder of Mosque architecture in Iran for viewers around the world. With a wide angle lens and a fisheye for effect, Domiri travels around Iran to photograph the wondrous Mosques and architectural works around the country.

Domiri’s photographs are carefully balanced, showing precise symmetry of forms in the repeated geometry of religious architecture. These are not simple point-and-shoot photographs. Carefully composed frames show the balance in each photograph, and the subjects are exposed perfectly with light and color.

The photographer’s skill is met with a subject matter that not every artist has access to. Mohammad Domiri’s photographs are well-produced, but should also be cherished for the perspective they provide to outsiders. It’s remarkable to see into the world of mosque architecture in Iran, seeing the repeated geometries that are common in the iconography these buildings represent.

Domiri’s portfolio can be viewed in full on his 500px profile, and photographs like these are available for purchase in various print sized. [via theawesomer]

    I’ve never understood why you can not make your website work properly in chrome. I’ve tried this site several times over the last 12-14 months and in different version of chrome (both 32 and 62bit, beta and standard) and the front page ALWAYS fails to load the images. Your website design company is clearly shit.
