For the exhibition “The World Viewed”, Amirali Ghasemi tells the stories behind the photographs he took between 2002-2007, in a non-linear narrative performance. He selects images from a pile of photos which he had printed for an exhibition called “Amirali’s Hard Disk”. (Over 2000 photographs each sized 18×13 cm, creating a large photo installation covering the large walls of Azad Gallery In Tehran.) Each photo has a unique story, and references to collective and individual memories, by looking at them closely one can notice four small holes in each corner of the photographs caused by the pins Ghasemi used to fix them on the walls.
