"Unreal City is a series of photographs of construction projects in three different countries (Iran, France, and the United States). Having grown up in Tehran, I was looking in abroad for an opportunity to reactivate the imaginary associated with this city: a construction site. Playing a contradictory role in the urban scene, the sites contain both signs of construction and ruin, a silent off-field of the city, something that is hidden, as it is usually hidden in the theater,  the change of scenery. These perpetual construction-ruins metaphorically represent the traces of the war in the urban area (starting with the Iran-Iraq war), as well as the economic crisis of a country in search of a new identity."
