Promoting and strengthening the artistic and cultural development of Orange County, North Carolina
An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until June 25, 2022
An exhibition of images captured in the latter half of 2021, Accidental Traveller is the result of the latest photographic expeditions of Sia Yazdanfar. As he had done so in 2020, Yazdanfar returned to his home country of Iran from the US, navigating travel to multiple locations with the world in the grips of a pandemic.
After a six-week run at Alamance Arts Sister Galleries, the Accidental Traveller exhibition will debut at the Nicholson Gallery, ArtsCenter on June 1st, and run through June 25th.
Shot in the latter half of 2021, this collection of photographs depicts the unique people and places of the subtropical southern fringes of Iran around Hormozgan Province.
“Boasting some of the most colorful landscape & locals I have ever encountered, Hormozgan Province borders the gulf where it meets the Strait of Hormuz, the preeminent strategic chokepoint on Earth. I believe these voyages yielded some of the most kaleidoscopic & engaging photos I have had the privilege to shoot, capturing some of the lesser known parts of the Middle East.” – Sia Yazdanfar
Reception and additional events will be announced throughout the exhibition:
Monday – Friday 9:00 am-9:00 pm
Saturday – Sunday 10:00 am-5:00 pm
