“Cracked Memories”

By Tirdad Aghakhani

When Tirdad visited his grandmother in Tehran in 2004, they talked about the importance of family roots. He remembers her saying, “As a tree cannot survive without its roots so is a family.” Along with his great-grandmother’s marriage certificate from more than 140 years ago, she gave him a gift with a collection of her old family photographs. He created an artistic process that combined these family photographs along with his fantasies about his relationship with his family. Finally Tirdad incorporates x-ray photos of his body parts into the photographs representing a part of his family “root” that he left behind. He explains “I have left my soul in these photographs so that I can be one with my family. I would like to connect to my roots, so that I can grow up again.”

Prints are 11X14 inches, edition of 10. $650- each print. Custom sizes by commission.

Walls of Downtown Tehran

by Mehdi Gooran Savadkoohi 
Online Exhibit – December 2020 through March 2021

Mehdi Gooran Savadkoohi is a street photographer and a prominent graphic designer whose work documents Tehran’s urban spaces, graffiti and cityscapes in an unconventional, poetic, and often abstract manner. His curious lens introduces a rarely seen point of views to the walls of downtown Tehran that is a complex matrix of texture, colors and mark-making.

Savadkoohi often walks for miles in the downtown neighborhoods, block-by-block and alley-by-alley, never missing a dead end, selectively capturing the traces left behind by regular Tehraners. He never edits his images after he takes the shots. Savadkoohi’s close-up photographs of the graffitist, posters, pieces of shoddy engineering, layers of bad paint jobs, and slogans sprayed on these walls may seem like an abstract work of art. But they also carry a forceful history of the presence of ordinary citizens who engage with a built environment that verges on controlled chaos.

Savadkoohi’s works have been included in many exhibitions and platforms including Golestan Gallery, Iran Graphic Design Biennial, and Tehran’s Graphic Museum.  He is the founder of Simorgh Graphic Design Studio, co-founder of  “Co-operative Tehran Graphic Designers”, and a member of Iranian Graphic Design Association among others.  Savadkoohi lives and works in Tehran, Iran.

All photographs are Edition of 10. $450.00 unframed, 14×11 inches print size. All other sizes are on demand.
