21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Artistic

What I am sending to you is actually my newest photography project “Monument[s]”. to make this series, I first of all photographed some of the most iconic architectural buildings in the history of Iran in favorite distance and angels and transferred them to a new background of my own photograph. Then, using 3D software and pixel by pixel manipulating, I tried to bring this simple scene to the realm of nature and gave the models a realistic and alive effect. My priority in this laborious journey was a non-historical dialogue with history and transmuting historical experience into historical imagination in contemporary space.
