Artwork - Vakil Mosque
The Story Behind The Shot
The Vakil Mosque in Siraz, Iran, was built between 1751 and 1773 in the Zand period. Karim Khan, the founder of the Zand Dynasty, used the title regent which means vakil in Persian. I took this picture when I was on holiday with my husband Jonas. I try to avoid going photographing when I’m on vacation, but I had to make an exception for the mosque, since I desperately wanted to go there in the early morning. I took my Leica and went there just before sunrise to stay for a few hours.
