Rod Sainty is a Sydney-based photographer specialising in large format photography of ancient architecture, especially Islamic. Having previously photographed ancient sites in Turkey and Morocco, his current focus is Persia / Iran.
The 10 photographs shown here are part of a set of 40 photographs exhibited in Sydney in 2017. Rod is planning a third visit to Iran during 2018 to complete his photographic survey. He is seeking gallery representation and publication.
In 2014 Rod exhibited black and white images from a climbing route between Makalu and Everest in the Nepal Himalaya. The images were published in Photo Compendium Australia II (Bob Kersey and Mary Meyer, eds, Black Mountain, 2014).
Closer to home, Rod has recently photographed Uluru (Ayers Rock) in Central Australia using his large-format camera with pleasing results. He intends to add to this portfolio during 2018.
