book design

Persepolis: 2560-2580 is a photography exhibition in London, England by Mohammad Ghazali. He intercepts the viewer with a series of monochromatic images which taken at face value, along with documentation used to reinforce their authenticity, are a photo-documentary of the construction of the ancient Persian city of Persepolis. The date, 2560-2580 – refers to the solar calendar of Iran and the coronation date of Cyrus, the first Achaemenid king of Persepolis in 559 BC, fusing a point in ancient history with now.
