Burnt Generation

Exhibition Details

This exhibition seeks to convey the impact of those decades of political unrest and social upheaval upon the Iranian people. The exhibition is a rare opportunity to move to a place beyond cliché; a moment to forget the stereotypical images of Iran and enter the world’s of eight highly original and intellectually engaged image makers.

Featuring documentary photography, portraiture and fine art photography Burnt Generation has three central themes: the isolation, loneliness and dissolution of youth; the common threads that unite the Nation in spite of everything; and the personal, political and social consequences of war.

Burnt Generation is curated by Fariba Farshad, Director of Candlestar, London, UK.
