In the Exodus, I Love You More
17 November – 3 December
In the Exodus, I love you more is an ongoing photographic series that I began in 2014. It is a record of my changing vision of, and relationship to, my homeland, Iran: a relationship that has been shaped by my having been away, by that distance that increases the nearness of all the things to which memory clings, and which renders the familiar… strange, and veiled. It is an attempt to embrace that distance and to turn it into a way of seeing; to let what is both there and not there shine through the surface; to explore the interplay of presence and absence in a place where the surface and depth often exchange looks, and to discover the truth that lies there, in-between.
