|Photo exhibit spotlights Iran-Iraq war||
TEHRAN – Tehran’s Palestine Museum of Contemporary Art is playing host to a photo exhibition, which shows the aftermath of air and missile attacks by Iraqi forces on Iranian cities during the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq war.
A selection of 70 photos by 50 photographers has been put on display in an exhibit entitled “House on Fire”, museum official Ehsan Omrani told the Persian service of MNA on Sunday.
Several photos also reflect the aftermath of the mustard gas attack on the Iranian town of Sardasht in northwest Iran by Iraqi forces in June 1987, Omrani added.
Mojtaba Aqaii, Jasem Ghazbanpur, Seifollah Samadian, Hamd Nateq, Mehdi Monem and Mehrzad Atashi are among the photographers whose photos are being exhibited.
The photos reflect the deep tragedy experienced for a time by several cities in southern region of the country such as Khorramshahr.
The exhibit, which opened on May 25, will be running until June 21 at the museum located at 64 Mozaffar Bros. St., off Taleqani Ave., near Felestin Square.
