Iranian photographer Peyman Hooshmandzadeh compiles four of his earlier series in a reflection on the meaning of “one”. While the respective themes are straightforward – belts, clothes, moustaches, balconies – the meaning behind the pictures becomes more complex. Each category is a repetition of one image, yet however similar they are, the images are not equal. More broadly, the images contain narratives of perception. Balconies conceal or reveal, depending on how they are used. And unlike the belts, where people expressed their reluctance to be photographed with jokes and sarcasm, those whose moustaches were pictured regarded the activity as a serious matter.
