Focus Iran 3 - Contemporary Photography and Video
Catalogue for Craft Contemporary's 2019 exhibition, Focus Iran 3: Contemporary Photography and Video.
Presented in collaboration with Farhang Foundation, Focus Iran 3 is the third biennial juried exhibition of international photography and video works that offer multiple perspectives about Iran and Iranian culture. Featuring a wide spectrum of emerging and mid-career artists from around the world, Focus Iran 3 democratizes the art form of image making by giving novices and professionals an equal opportunity to offer distinctive visions of Iran from both inside and outside the country. This year’s theme positions a lens on Iranian youth culture with works selected for their multi-faceted and intriguing views into young Iranians and how they navigate their lives. Some portraits reveal personal style or street fashion, while others show time spent participating in leisure activities such as sports, music, or hanging out. Other works explore queer identity, gender representations, and the relationship of youth with their religion, family, and the state.
