EPHEMERAL PRAYER

 

THE CONTEMPORARY MONTEREY CA

DIGITAL EXHIBITION 2014

Iranian artist Majeed Beenteha's "Prayer Series" was taken over the course of an afternoon at a home in Tehran. The work is a pensive study on the intimate moments one finds in a chaotic city, the reflection on prayer, and the ways in which Islam is marginalized in broader culture.
