Published Works


is europe’s foremost cultural magazine, est. 1988 by and run as editor-in-chief frank berberich, in Berlin, as the german language issue of an initiative by a Chzeck intellectual. all others have long stalled and. LI is the only publication (quarterly) on the continent that publishes robust photography respectfully in the environment that it merits — literature, art, philosophy, history, theatre, reportage and, above all essays on what matters in politics, science etc.

it is symptomatic that they did not list Farshid’s work under ‘photography’ but that he is listed as an author, hence his works is seen as a contribution that is more than an illustration. the extensive caption on the lefthand page of the first spread acknowledges his studies in psychology and that his imagery is aimed at conveying the socio-psychological aspects of iran’s post-revolutions generation. photography therefor treated as language.
