|Russian photographers reflect Iran’s beauties in Moscow exhibit||
TEHRAN – An exhibition of photos by two Russian photographers reflecting Iran’s historical sites, landscapes and daily lives opened at Iran’s Cultural Office in Moscow on Friday.
A collection of 220 photos by Irina Kuksenkova, a correspondent who has collaborated with Moskovskiy Komsomolets newspaper, and Maria Lazarova has been put on display in the exhibit, the office reported on its website.
Speaking at the opening ceremony, Kuksenkova said that she has collected beautiful photos of Iran during the years she had lived there.
She expressed hope that the exhibit would help develop ties between the two countries especially among the journalists.
Iran is a country with abundant beauty where one can take a photo every second, but unfortunately not many are aware of this magnificence, she added.
Maria Lazarova regarded Iran a country, which is interesting not only for Orientalists but also for ordinary people.
She hoped that more exhibits would be held in Iran and Russia to make the two nations more familiar with each other.
Iran’s cultural attaché in Moscow Hossein Tabatabaii also made a brief speech and said that the two photographers have continued their studies in Iran.
He added that the exhibit has been arranged to introduce the beauties of Iran to Russia.
The exhibit will be running for two weeks.
