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.
