The exhibition, by photojournalists, showcases photos of the very first moments Plasco caught fire until the funeral of the brave firemen who were killed in the collapse of the building.


Tehran hosts an exhibition titled “Love and Fire” at the Iranian Artists Forum to show Tehran’s Plasco Building tragedy in January and events in the aftermath of that.

The exhibition, by photojournalists, showcases photos of the very first moments Plasco caught fire until the funeral of the brave firemen who were killed in the collapse of the building.

Plasco, a 17-storey mega mall in downtown Tehran, collapsed to the ground three and a half hours after it caught fire, and sixteen firefighters and a number of citizens lost their lives in the tragic incident.

According to the secretary of the exhibit, opened on Sunday, Hamed Jafarnejad, the exhibit puts the spotlight on the round-the-clock endeavors of the firemen.

“We aim to express our thanks to the firefighters and pay respects to the families of the victims,” he added.

A selection of the photos of the Plasco tragedy is scheduled to be published in a book in the near future.
