Shadi Ghadirian – Qajar

“In the series Qajar, I tried to reconstruct the atmosphere of a previous era by using old backdrops. My models, chosen among close family and friends, are shown wearing clothes from the turn of the 20th century and are carrying objects, mostly smuggled, into contemporary Iran.”
