Movement is the theme of the Photo Exhibition of the 2020 Edinburgh Iranian Festival. This year’s photo exhibition has been curated in response to the film season theme, which explores how men and women move through spaces, both public and private, in Iran. This exhibition includes diverse work by Iranian photographers who have masterfully captured different
forms of movement in various locations in Iran.
The exhibition was curated by the acclaimed Iranian photographer and former photojournalist, Laleh Sherkat. Sherkat is renowned for her work during the Iran-Iraq war and documenting the life of female prisoners in Iran. She is a founding member of the Iranian Press Photography Society and has juried and curated many photography exhibitions and competitions in Iran and Scotland.
