The Cars of Iran

About the place?

In 2001, there were 13 public and privately owned automakers in Iran, of which two local brands, Khodro and Saipa, accounted for 94% of the total domestic production. Today, the Peykan, replaced by the Samand, held 61% of the market.

The project?

The project Place and Culture is part of an ongoing practice where Philip documents places with photo and sound equipment.

As an artistic research method originating from ethnographic tradition, the practice shows how places are structured and used by people. Simply, it gives a sensory experience of a site at a particular time and vibe.
