Iranian Photographer Displaying Artworks in Indonesia

TEHRAN (FNA)- Jassem Qazbanpour, an Iranian photographer, has started exhibiting his pictures of the Persian-Islamic architecture of Iranian mosques in a number of exhibitions in different Indonesian cities.



The exhibitions, titled The Elegance of Shadows, kicked off on July 25, 2011, and run for two weeks in Bandung, Bogor and the capital city of Jakarta.

Visitors can see a selection of 40 photographs which depict the unique designs of Iranian mosques, and are displayed in an attempt to strengthen the unity between Sunni and Shiite Muslims.

Qazbanpour's photographs can also be seen online at photochilick.com for a month starting on July 26, 2011.

Born in the southern Iranian city of Khorramshahr, Qazbanpour started his artistic activities with architectural photography, focusing on Persian houses.

His aerial pictures of Iranian landscapes and urban architecture are also published in a book titled From the Sky of Iran.
