More than a Window

Abstract, Black and White


Windows are more than what we can imagine, they hold layers of images—my goal was to combine those layers in one photograph.

When you pass by a store or a window of a home, or even when you look at car windows, the first thing you look for are objects behind the glass. Walking around a city like Tehran, you could see a combination of reflections on the glass and a movement behind the glass.

When you encircled by architectural spaces, you will find a combination of forms and patterns all over the space drown into a shadow. In fact, that was my main goal in this project, to capture a combination of two spaces. One, the fixed world, behind the glass and the second was the flow or movement of the city in front of it.
