The Silent & The Playful: Light

"...This collection is dedicated to the reflection of natural light on different surfaces such as glass and plastic. None of the pictures is taken from dust, smoke, or moving objects. The feeling of move- ment in the photos comes from two sources: the movement of light itself, and the turn and swing of the camera in my hand with a long shutter speed. Natural light always offers surprising twists and turns, as well as the gradual matchless changes due to the change of sunlight. I don’t use filters.

Colors result from the natural light reflection on objects, or light decomposition when passed through glass..."

Aras Karimi explores the silent, playful beauty of light in his mediative images

READ MORE

All of my photographs are purposefully Untitled. I like to give a chance to the viewer to experience their own emotion while they are coinciding with an expression of mine. It is also unnatural to apply a rational meaning to something that is opposite from being a product of intellect as all of my works are pure reflections of my vision, and emotion at the moment the shot is taken.

This collection is dedicated to the reflection of natural light on different surfaces such as glass and plastic. None of the pictures is taken from dust, smoke, or moving objects. The feeling of movement in the photos comes from two sources: the change of light’s angle during the day, and the turn and swing of the camera in my hand with a long shutter speed.

I try to illustrate light in its most naked way, freeing and extracting it from the sense of time, space, and objects.

"Light is the subject of my works. I am interested in light as a story teller. In fact the scene in my works is the medium to picture light, its mood on different surfaces, and its personality in different spaces."

Aras Karimi sieht das Medium der Fotografie als eine Beziehung zwischen Licht und Film: Licht als spielerischer Akteur und Film als seriöser Registrator. Licht ist das Subjekt seiner Arbeiten. Ungleich üblicher fotografischer Prozesse, erstellt der Künstler keine Szenerien, die eine Geschichte offenbaren, sondern zeigt sein Subjekt als den Erzähler selbst. Karimi stellt ihn in subtiler, aber doch gefühlvoller Art und Weise dar.

Tales of Perplexity / Memoir of a Rebellious Light

"...I look at photography as a relationship between light and film: light as a playful actor and film as a serious recorder. The job of a photographer, which is experimental by nature, is to write the best scenario for this one-time instant play. A genuine play is inevitably the result of accurate eyes, free mind, and fundamentals of photography at heart... "

The Silent & The Playful: Light

“Unlike the usual process in photography where light is the modest messenger of a story, in my work light itself become the storyteller and objects become the messengers letting light expand its playful presence on them. Light is truly the ‘subject’ of my works.”

Emerging photographer Aras Karimi creates beautiful abstract images using the pure elements of light and air.

Born in 1983 in Iran, Aras Karimi began photographing at the age of 16. He is an emerging artist based in Los Angeles with several awards on his resume, including 10 honorable mentions in the International Photography Awards in the past three years. He studies fine art at Santa Monica College, CA.

Rays of Light: Photographer Aras Karimi’s Modern Approach

"... As the “KISS” design principle suggests, Fine Art Photographer, Aras Karimi, keeps it simple. 'I like to give a chance to the viewer to experience their own emotion while they are coinciding with an expression of mine.” Notes the Iranian artist who leaves all of his photographs untitled (and uncomplicated…At least at first sight.).

Karimi sees photography as “a relationship between light and film: light as a playful actor and film as a serious recorder. Light is the subject of my works. Unlike the usual process in photography that uses light as a mean to record a scene and tell its story, I am interested in light as a story teller.”..."
