Informations
For this publication ‘Portraits de Villes’, Be-poles invited India Mahdavi to talk about her native city, Tehran. This book is a tracking shot between urbanisation and vestiges, at the border of what has been erased and what is reborn. It’s a first for the architect, who signs a portfolio of photographs taken between 2012 and 2017 in Tehran. ‘It took 50 years for me to discover this country, this city. I wanted to show an intimate part of Tehran, with some inhabited interiors and others empty, abandoned. I like the contrast between this mega pole of 18 million inhabitants and the sweetness of the tea, the hospitality…’ Throughout the photographs that associate memories and snapshots, India Mahdavi delivers an intimate vision of a city ‘in which absence and life coincide to give beauty.’
