A collection of photos depicting the 1980s Iran-Iraq war has been showcased during an exhibition mounted in Tehran’s Palestine Museum of Contemporary Art.

Titled House on Fire, the exhibition has displayed some 70 photos, taken by 50 photographers.

The photos represent Iran’s sacred defense in hard conditions of the imposed war in several Iranian cities.

The 1987 Chemical gas attack of Iraqi forces on the Iranian town of Sardasht in northwest Iran has been also reflected in some exhibited photos.

Over 1000 individuals were killed and more than 8000 were permanently disabled due to the attack.

Many children gradually lost their vision after birth due to the consequences of the chemical bombardment at the area.

Seifollah Samadian, Hamd Nateq, Mehdi Monem, Mehrzad Atashi, Jasem Ghazbanpour are among the photographers whose works have been displayed at the exhibition.

House on Fire exhibition kicked off on May 25 and will run until June 21.
