Behind the Scenes of Gohar Dashti’s ‘Home’

Discover the meticulous process of Gohar Dashti and her team, who worked in abandoned homes in Mashhad, Iran, to create the Home series. The scenes of assembled natural materials—plants, soil, flowers—carefully selected for each specific building reflect on the resilience of nature and, ultimately, the meaning and loss of home. “The Home series is a project about the people,” Dashti once explained. “Maybe you cannot see the people, but it’s about the people.”
