The Nasir Al-Mulk mosque is somewhat of a hidden gem when it comes to historic buildings. It’s vibrant colors and complex geometric patterns create an aura of magic and wonder for those fortunate enough to sit inside. Getting permission to photograph a site like this comes with it’s difficulties, which is what makes these photos all the more special.
Mohammad Domiri, the photographer behind these wonderful photos, explained the significance of the mosque to the Daily Mail:
In Iran, we have many historical sites – but some of the greatest are places of worship like mosques. As we have a grand mosque in every big city there are many historical buildings with lots of beautiful mosaics to capture.
I like looking for the symmetry, mosaics and artworks in these temples. I like how they let the light come inside and columns are special too as they divide interior space and give some depth.
Maybe some of these historical sites will not exist in 20 years or change a lot during that time.
When I am capturing these pictures, I think about how they will be recorded and in future I hope people will be able to see their beauty.
