"Aks” and “Suwar” are the Persian and Arab words for pictorial representations.

In this show – which runs alongside the first exhibition of Middle Eastern photographers at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London – Rose Issa Projects brings together myriad talents in contemporary photography from the Arab world and Iran. Aks and Suwar introduces an alternative spectrum of styles and approaches, from staged narratives to montage, painted stencils based on photography to digital photography on embroidered canvas and videoworks.

Most of the artists in this exhibition feature in Iranian Photography Now (Hatje Cantz, 2008) and Arab Photography Now (Kehrer Verlag, 2011), both edited by Rose Issa.

“Aks” includes work by:
Farhad Ahrarnia – Reza Aramesh – Azar Emdadi – Shadi Ghadirian – Amirali Ghasemi – Taraneh Hemami - Babak Kazemi - Abbas Kiarostami - Abbas Kowsari – Mitra Tabrizian – Newsha Tavakolian – Nassiem Valamanesh
