The Days of Their Lives: Seifollah Samadian
LONDON  •  Xerxes Fine Arts  •  Ongoing

Seifollah Samadian’s The Days of Their Lives explores the everyday existence of the Iranian populace, photographed as they participate in organised events and parades. The series of eighteen images reveals another face of Iran and offers a subtle socio-economic commentary on a world seldom seen by outsiders.

Highly-regarded internationally as a cinematographer and art director as well as a photographer, who has worked
with directors such as Martin Scorsese and Abbas Kiarostami, Samadian came to the forefront of critical attention in the wave of Iranian photography that gained momentum in the arts scene following the end of the Iran-Iraq war. In the drive to document events that followed, Samadian became Professor of Photojournalism at the University of Tehran and is today Publisher and Editor-in-chief of the Iranian cultural magazine, Tassvir.
