Mohammad Reza Domiri GanjiFrom the perfectly symmetrical arches to the intricate mosaics and vivid stained glasswork, Iranian architecture is a sight to behold — and to photograph! In the image above, viewers are given a glimpse of the praying room inside the Nasir al-Mulk mosque in Shiraz, Iran. Built between 1876 and 1888, this beautiful traditional mosque is nicknamed the "Pink Mosque" due to its heavy use of pink interior tiles and glass.

The artist responsible for this collection of stunning panoramas is Mohammad Reza Domiri (at right), a 23-year-old student attending Mazandaran University in Babolsar, Iran. Although he's currently studying physics, it's clear he also possesses an extraordinary talent and passion for architectural photography.

To create these images, Domiri uses wide-angle or fish-eye lenses to shoot several images of the same location. He then stitches them together in post-processing to form a surreal architectural landscape.

Here's just a selection of images that Domiri has graciously allowed us to publish, though you should definitely check out his 500px, Facebook and website to see more of his work!
