Tehran photo exhibit explores liberation of Aleppo

Date: 10 April 2017

An exhibition of photos highlighting the liberation of the Syrian city of Aleppo opened at the Iranian Photographers Center in Tehran on Sunday 9 April 2017.

A selection of 35 photos taken by documentarian and photographer Morteza Shabani have been put on display at the exhibit entitled “Aleppo Was Liberated.”

According to Shabani, “Since the liberation of Aleppo and retaking full control of the city was of great strategic importance, the photographer has put his main focus on the urban space during the war and after its liberation,” he explained.

Occupied by NATO and Saudi backed terrorists for more than four years, Aleppo was liberated on  22 December 2016.

Baqeri added that this is the third exhibit on the Syrian war, hoping that more exhibits on Syria by other photographers would open at the center in the future.

The exhibit, which opened on April 9, will be running for ten days at the center located at Somayyeh St. off Hafez Ave.
