The Nature of Light, artist Azadeh Ghotbi’s latest photography series, was entirely shot in Norway. It explores visual wonderment and delves into emotional sensitivity towards fleeting beauty within Nature. The workd delves into the process of slowing down a fleeting moment in time long enough to reveal and magnify it, to invite others to observe, behold and cherish it.
The Nature of Light examines the alchemy and interplay between light, time, movement and space, and at times, the subject of impermanence and paradox within visual reality. What is tangible vs. perceived, manifest vs. ambiguous, veritable vs. distorted? The resulting imagery confronts the viewers with these questions, challenges their perception while inviting them to interrogate their intuitive visual reliance on fact vs. fiction.
Azadeh Ghotbi started her artistic journey as a painter later embracing photography as a much welcomed complementary medium, as one would a new palette of hues to enable a broader spectrum of expression. Doing so further sharpened her sense of observation, attention to details, visual language and sense of composition. “I owe it a whole new way of seeing” she says. Her work has been exhibited in Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Paris, London, the Middle East and New York.
