Following his 2014 exhibition Imperium Romanum, the Austrian photographer will present his latest project IRAN BETWEEN TIMES for the first time this November.T he exhibition includes a selection of approximately 60 photographs from Seiland's Iran series, which he began in 2017. Similar to his previous project, IRAN BETWEEN TIMES draws on the interplay between past and present and the ways in which people relate to it. The selection encompasses landscape photographs, illustrating the rich and complex history of Iran, as well as photographs of unadulterated scenes from everyday Iranian life. Analogue large-format photographs, for which Seiland is known, alternate with more spontaneous medium-format camera shots, always maintaining the uniform visual language from his previous Imperium Romanum series. With this project, the photographer aims to challenge the viewer to critically think about how Western media oftentimes fail to represent an unprejudiced and unbiased view of the former Persian Empire, and to reflect at the same time on the major socio-political topics that are at the forefront of Iran's society today.  Visual : Nasir-ol-Molk Mosque Schiras, Iran, 2019 Florence Reckinger will welcome the Amis des Musées for this visit.
