the labyrinth motifs ubiquitous throughout middle eastern culture are often incredibly complex and intricate in their composition and detail. places of religious worship are adorned with kaleidoscopic colors and rich ornamentation within their interior walls and onto the ceilings, establishing a space that hypnotizes those inside.

 

northern iranian student mohammad reza domiri ganji has photographed these sacred structures in a series of panoramic photographs, revealing the depths of these vast architectural expanses in a single shot. towering domes painted vibrant blues and yellows are etched and painted with undulating designs; elaborate floral decorations made from mosaics line the floors and walls; light cast from stained glass brings brightly hued shadows into the spaces.
