Dumbo Landmark

This famous tourist attraction location is in Brooklyn, New York. There are buildings on both sides of the street and can see the Empire State building through the Manhattan bridge. I deliberately used black and white light with shadow to express its unique charm.

Humans are obsessed with time and yet there are places on earth where time stands still. COVID-19 has frozen time temporarily in the way we interact with each other.There is a strong desire to unfreeze our time during which we have longed for that human touch while the world came together under a single umbrella.

Waiting for Hope

The Iran Mall is the biggest mall in Tehran. I took this image during the summer that is passed. My goal was to describe the impact of Corona on the privacy of shopping malls, and this iron ceiling and its architecture caused this photo to be this way.

Re-Imagine the City

This photo was taken from the Summit One Vanderbilt, which is the world’s most immersive observatory experience. Its dizzying glass box observatory is filled with reflective surfaces cast against sprawling windows that showcase the skyline, including the Empire State Building in the foreground. This is a $3.3 billion development designed by architecture firm Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates. – New York, USA 29-10-2021

The Wings of an Angel

The abstract shape of the bridge and the tones of greys on it gave a feel of an angel flying with its open wings in the sky. The monochrome rendition helps it give a timeless feel.
