Kaveh Golestan Photo Exhibition in Amsterdam Past

Sunday, May 4, 2014 - Amsterdam, NH, Netherlands

Kaveh Golstan was an important photographer, working for the BBC as a photojournalist and sadly died in 2003, when he stepped on a landmine in Kifri, Iraq. The works presented show a close and intimate glimpse into the lives of the women working and living in the Citadel of Shahr-e No, the red light district of Tehran. This portrait serie is one of the few documents left that remind us to the citadel and its female inhabitants. The Citadel is part of a project of curator Vali Mahlouji. The project re-circulates and reincorporates historical and cultural material – destroyed, banned or underrepresented, yet historically significant – back into cultural memory and discourse.
