An Instagram photographer takes his followers to a journey through the history of iranian architecture and design. Iranian architect Mehrdad Rasoulifard dedicates his time to capture the structural and artistic intricacies of Iran’s most significant places of worship. Iranian architecture utilizes symbolic geometry, magnificent domes and mosaic arches that form impressive ceilings. The ceilings are not only covered in rich patterns, but architecturally structured to appear like complex tessellations or honeycombs. Check out amazingly detailed ceilings of Iranian mosques taken by Mehrdad Rasoulifard. Be sure to visit his Instagram account for more photos.
