At mid-morning, the Nasir Al-Mulk Mosque, a.k.a. the Pink Mosque, in Shiraz, Iran, fills with sunlight. The stained-glass windows pour a symmetrical stream of psychedelic colors onto the intricate carpeting, making this 126-year-old mosque perhaps more colorful than any other in the world:
This photo was created by Mohammad Reza Domiri Ganji, a northern Iranian photographer who uses HDR and fisheye lenses to creatively skew Muslim architecture into dazzlingly twisted shapes and colors. He also dabbles in landscape and documentary shots–candid-like images of locals writing or weaving carpets in a factory.
