Reimagining Home: Photographs by Bahman Jalali and Gohar Dashti

Fellows Event

This exhibition features work by Bahman Jalali (1944–2010) and Gohar Dashti (b. 1980), two photographers of different generations with a rich shared history—as Iranians, as teacher and student, and as artists with deep knowledge of documentary photography. The featured works reveal that the artists also shared a strategy: incorporating surreal, fictive elements powered by their imaginations into their work, as a response to the political, social, and cultural changes they witnessed.
