Lot description
"La Femme en Robe" (2003) is a visually and conceptually stunning photograph by Iranian artist Rana Javadi that belongs to her acclaimed "Once Upon a Time" series. Here she places an inverted black and white negative of a vintage wedding photograph of a bride behind a wallet-sized photo of woman peaking out of purse. Both images are over-exposed and represent various generations of the same family and/or different times in one woman's life, emphasizing the passing of time and memories faded. Through these layers, the artist embraces a sense of nostalgia and loss as well as the differences between pre- and post-Revolutionary Iranian society and culture. Javadi's photographs tell hauntingly beautiful stories related to family members from generations past, and the peaceful times and prosperity of Iran prior to the Revolution in 1979. This work is from en edition of 5, is unframed and in excellent condition.
