The “Abstract Real” video
This video offers glimpses of the works I exhibited in my studio in 2016 – an exploration of abstract photography: What is real? What is abstract? And how do the two mix…blur?
All the works started out with a photography and successively changed in the process to become “abstract”.
I find that fascinating since photography has almost always been about taking pictures of what is, i.e. documentary. (Of course with the exception of those few who experimented with “photograms” à la Moholy-Nagy and other techniques that departed from the urge to present a documentation of a recognizable reality).
Observe please the inspiration from Iranian aesthetics, including classical geometric patterns and calligraphy, and enjoy the music I’ve chosen by Iranian composer Fariborz Lachini too.
