The Everlasting Roots
A Selection of Abbas Kiarostami’s photographs from The Farjam Collection
The Farjam Foundation’s March edition of exhibitions will celebrate the life and visual legacy of the renowned film director, photographer, painter and poet, Abbas Kiarostami.
The comprehensive exhibition will survey a range of his photographic works, including: Snow White, Roads, Trees & Crows, as well as Wind & Rain series from The Farjam Collection. His riveting images reveal an artist who speaks to the singular passion and sentiment for nature's beauty and the theme of enlightenment; each are emphasised both literally and figuratively in a mystical manner. The exhibition will honour Kiarostami’s eternal flame, as his spirit exceeds its vessel, flowing outwardly though his works, continuing to inspire the world.
