A kaleidoscope of colours!

These incredible photos capture the intricate detail of the Middle East’s grandest temples – a kaleidoscope of colours on their ceilings.
Mohammad Domiri creates his mesmerising works using a variety of techniques such as panoramic shots and fisheye lenses.
The 23-year-old, from Mazandaran, Iran, spends hours researching the famous architecture – all of which are in his home country.
Due to restrictions on tripods, as well as overcrowding, it is very difficult to get permission to shoot inside these grand wonders.
As a result there are very few images of such temples – meaning his photography is extremely rare.
Mohammad said: ‘In Iran, we have many historical sites – but some of the greatest are places of worship like mosques.
‘As we have a grand mosque in every big city there are many historical buildings with lots of beautiful mosaics to capture.
‘I like looking for the symmetry, mosaics and artworks in these temples.

‘I like how they let the light come inside and columns are special too as they divide interior space and give some depth.
‘Maybe some of these historical sites will not exist in 20 years or change a lot during that time.
‘When I am capturing these pictures, I think about how they will be recorded and in future I hope people will be able to see their beauty.’
