From Carpet to the Throne, 2016

Hossein Younesi

This beautiful arched structure draws the eye upward, toward the the sky-blue ceiling and the light coming in from above. The dome is a complicated latticework of concave diamond-shaped sections, their lower points drawing our gaze down to the graceful pointed archways below. The thick walls in the foreground appear to tilt, creating a sense that the entire structure could be floating. In his notes for this image, Iranian photographer Younesi points to its spirituality — he says it provides, “an overview of the architecture of a place, by defining motion towards God.”
