Sissi Farassat


Edwynn Houk Gallery exhibits recent works by Sissi Farassat (Iranian, b. 1969). This is her first solo exhibition in New York.

Farassat drastically alters the most inherent properties of the photographs : the instantaneousness of the camera and the possibility of creating multiple photographic prints.
