Star-less: Beyond the Screen
by Maryam Takhtkeshian
Cinema is not alive only because of its stars. Cinema is not just that colorful image that comes to life on the screen. The Star-less series documents unseen moments behind the scenes regardless of any immediate and direct limitations and requirements of still photography; the story of the people who have marginal roles. These photos depict a purgatory that formed between the film stage and the cinema screen; a moment that history does not remember.
