closed Safar: Journey to the Middle East.

The show

Sixty shots taken by Farian Sabahi in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Iran, the Arab Emirates, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan and Yemen between February 1998 and spring 2005 and exhibited for the first time.
In Persian and Arabic, Safar means travel. A word that in itself encompasses the multiple meanings of the exhibition: it tells the journeys faced by Farian Sabahi, the Lands and the people portrayed and at the same time urges the visitor to make a journey, double, geographical and emotional. The journalist and scholar Farian Sabahi gives us a world seen and immortalized just before and immediately after some of these countries began terrible wars, a world distorted even where the war was not fought, but where the scars of old conflicts remain or where progress contrasts strong and arrogant with the more traditional aspects of everyday life.
