This time, closer than ever and in my own house, I fixed my camera on a tripod; in front of the window where I’d watched the same view of the city for ten years, a city that I don’t know if I love or not. A window that opens on to many other windows that are all closed and I cannot see into. This is the story of others. The others that I know and their stories. I have captured moments from their stories in this room and within the frame of a window that looks upon the cold and hazy view of My City.
At the same time an earlier series of work by Newsha Tavakolian, titled “Mother’s of Martyrs” is on display among a selection of photography from Middle East at Victoria and Albert Museum in London, UK.
