an instagram photographer is taking viewers on a visual journey through the history of iranian architecture and design. m1rasoulifard captures the structural and artistic intricacies of iran’s most significant places of worship and cultural complexes, from the jāmeh mosque — one of the oldest still standing in the country — to the chaharbagh school, both in the city of isfahan.

as home to one of the world’s oldest civilizations, iran is recognized for its ancient architectural wonders, whose often modest façades hide complex mosaic motifs and richly detailed ornamentation within. throughout the photographic series, the artist highlights the vibrant patterns extending along the diameters of domed ceilings, and the intricate network of symbols spanning across surrounding walls. the abstract captures and their cropped compositions seek to accentuate the labyrinthine geometries and meticulous tiling innate to iran’s architectural record.
