From the publisher: "Shirana Shahbazi frequented the Conference and Education Center of a Swiss Re Insurance building over a period of 12 months. The resulting montage of photography and classical painting genres cultivates an associative trip through portrait, landscape, still life and history painting. What emerges depends partly on your eye's liability."
