Deuxième Biennale des Images du Monde

In 2009, the artistic direction of the 2nd Photoquai biennial was entrusted to Anahita Ghabaian Ettehadieh, Director of the Silk Road Gallery of Tehran, the only place specifically dedicated to photography in Iran, that she founded in 2001. She worked in collaboration with some 20 associated curators, who were given the task of identifying young talent in six large geographic zones (South and Latin America, North America, Asia, Caucasus, India, Oceania, Africa). These young photographers do not have a common discourse; they are reunited by the resonance of their works which reflect both their own sensibilities and the social reality of their country. Their work can be found in the corresponding catalogue.
