San Francisco Featured Artist: Zohreh Noorian

Featured Artist Zohreh Noorian at Red Union Hair Salon and Art Gallery San Francisco, CAZohreh Noorian: Photography is how I express myself. I am not naturally a talkative person, I share what’s important to me through my art. Nature is the preferred subject of my photography because it is humbling, provides me with clarity, and relaxes me. I love the vastness of nature because in it I see life revealing itself.

Photography is my way of expressing this view to others. When I take a photograph, I excitedly think, “I’ve captured this moment of life.” I hope others will experience that same fleeting moment and beauty when they see my photos. My photography style is vibrant and playful.

Through the lens, the spontaneity of nature is revealed. When I hold my camera, I see life’s beauty unfolding moment by moment. In my every photograph, life bringing itself, in all it’s entirely to my attention. Rather than using preconceived formulas and techniques to create art, I allow the art of that moment to decide the photograph that I take. In so doing, I capture instants of life as they happen. When one is present and in the moment, life in all of its fullness will reveal itself to you.

While the process of learning the skills of ones craft is crucial, Art is an inspiration that comes from within. I believe we are all artists—photography brings out the inspired artist in me. “When you don’t expect anything and open to the possibility, everything is at your disposal.” ~Rumi, 7th century
