RRB Editions is a new venture from RRB Photobooks. Our aim is to provide high quality limited edition prints at an affordable price, whether you're an established collector or just getting started.
Our newest print, Amak Mahmoodian's 'Untitled, from Zanjir' shows the artist's father, exemplifying the dreamlike quality of memory and the 'chain' of family that is so vital to the Zanjir work as a whole.
Each print is also accompanied by a certificate of authenticity and a printed postcard, stamped with text from the Zanjir photobook.
Amak Mahmoodian’s Zanjir (Translation: “chain”) presents a body of photographs that cross great distances – reaching through history to bring the earliest images of Iranian photography into the present, across oceans to invite Mahmoodian’s family and friends; and across the border between life and death.
Mahmoodian's Zanjir, curated by Alejandro Acin and Kieran Swann, is showing now at Arnolfini, Bristol, UK.
