Mosques of Iran

 At age 23, after only five years of practicing photography, physics student Mohammad Reza Domiri Ganji has an amazing mastery of the subject. He is particularly interested in architectural and panoramic photography, as shown here in these stunning photographs of mosques in northern Iran. Mohammad said in an interview,

"In Iran, we have many historical sites - but some of the greatest are places of worship like mosques. As we have a grand mosque in every big city there are many historical buildings with lots of beautiful mosaics to capture.

I like looking for the symmetry, mosaics and artworks in these temples. I like how they let the light come inside and columns are special too as they divide interior space and give some depth.

Maybe some of these historical sites will not exist in 20 years or change a lot during that time. When I am capturing these pictures, I think about how they will be recorded and in future I hope pople will be able to see their beauty."

As an enthusiast of photography, I'd be willing to bet that this won't be the last time I see the work of this photographer in the press. Visit his website, Facebook page or 500px site to see more.
