Arts At The Old Fire Station and Modern Art Oxford present the first major exhibition of portraits by photographer Kazem Hakimi, taken in his fish and chip shop on Iffley Road.
Hakimi says: “My customers are a wide-ranging cross-section of society, and the photographs reveal an Oxford which is very different to the image of the city known to the outside world; one that is multi-ethnic and diverse. This series celebrates the range of characters who have made Oxford the city that I love.”
For two years, Hakimi has recorded his community by photographing the customers in his shop, and posing them against the same white wall. This collaborative two-venue exhibition showcases his passion for the city and its people.
Join us on Friday 5 May at both venues to celebrate the exhibition opening. 5.30pm – 7pm at the Old Fire Station, from 6.30pm til late at Modern Art Oxford. Travel between the two venues to see the portraits, and hear more about the people involved.
