Doors without keys

Doors-without-keys-800x450Acclaimed photographer, poet, and filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami opens the world premiere of Doors Without Keys this week at Toronto’s Aga Khan Museum.

Doors Without KeysThe closed doors  — photographed over 20 years in Iran, France, Morocco, and Italy — are printed at life size, mounted on canvas, and arranged like a maze, recalling the labyrinthine streets of an unnamed old city.

  1. I would love to see this! The images on your post look fantastic, but seeing them life-sized and set up like a maze would take it to another level of awesome. 🙂
