Love, Stories from the East and the West

In the gardens of the Abbey, the Babak Kazemi photographer revisits the legend, tragic and romantic, a love triangle: The escape of Shirin & Farhad. Farhad, stonemason, and King Khosrow are both in love with the beautiful Shirin. The king, to oust Farhad, assigns him an insurmountable task, that of opening a path through a mountain. Farhad bravely embraces it, showing the strength of his love for Shirin. With The Flight of Shirin & Farhad , Babak Kazemi offers a modern writing of one of the greatest classical texts of Persian culture, “Shirin and Farhad” by the poet Nezami Ganjavi (1175). Revisiting this love story through photography is a roundabout way for the artist to evoke the current struggles of those who must go into exile to find love and freedom.
