“Dur Untash” is the name of a photography collection that has captured a different view of the old ancient city of Dur Untash and the famous complex of “Chogha Zanbil.” Chogha Zanbil complex was built about 1250 BC by the king “Untash Gal” mainly to honour the great God “Inshushinak,” the keeper and guardian of the ancient city of Susa. The minimal look of this project is a way to create new forms, using shadows and combining them with the remaining structures of this great ruin.
