The Tiles of Shah Mosque

About the place?

The Shah Mosque was built during the Safavid Empire, ordered by Abbas I of Persia. It is regarded as one of the masterpieces of Persian architecture in the Islamic era featuring an astounding set of details in the decoration of its tiles

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.
