Shirana Shahbazi [Composition-40-2011] 2011

  • Not on view

Shahbazi makes photographs in classic genres like portraiture, still life, and landscape. Alternating between abstraction and representation, her vividly colored pictures are made in the crisp style of commercial studio photography without the aid of digital tools. She achieves her abstract compositions by photographing geometric volumes and pedestals whose sides are painted various colors, making multiple exposures of the same set of elements and turning them between exposures to create an interplay between surface and depth.
