Ramak Bamzar: Head On Photo, Sydney 2015 PastMay 1-10, 2015 - Sydney, Australia
Head On Photo Festival : The Australians – My Pick
Iranian Wedding – Ramak Bamzar
Ramak Bamzar's exhibition Iranian Wedding was shot between 2005 and 2008 in the small Iranian town of Karaj. "I've chosen to exhibit this work to illustrate the impact that tradition and religion has on the ritual of marriage and how dissimilar it is to Australian traditions," says Ramak who was born in Tehran and now lives in Melbourne where she works as a freelance photographer.
Exhibiting this work in Iran would be "prohibited," says Ramak. "Photographers cannot display, publish, or exhibit any photos of an uncovered woman in public. In my opinion, beauty is relative and often heavily influenced by one's culture".
