TEHRAN, Jul. 25 (MNA) – Three photographs by Farzin Nazemzadeh has brought for him multiple awards and international acclaim during past four months.

Nazemzadeh told Mehr News on Monday that his ‘Snowy Morning,’ participating in Norwegian Arctic Festival, has won for him golden trophy of the event. “The event is organized by International Federation of Photographic Art (FIAP) and Photographic Society of America; a second photograph, ‘Effort,’ participated in French festival which won a diploma of honor as well,” he added.

“A third photo sent to British Bristol Photo Festival, ‘Anzali Fishers,’ also was recognized as deserving distinction; ‘Snowy Morning’ is a favorite of mine, since it records last year’s only episode when snow covered Tehran streets; it was 5AM in the morning, but the snowy weather’s star was on descendant and its rule was ended with sunlight showing itself from behind Damavand; the photo taken is quite simple in form: it features from a dominating angle from above an empty chair and a car; the man in green connotes life and coming of the spring; it combines three element of loneliness in a single photo,” Nazemzadeh detailed on his photo.

“This photo is for me reminiscent of a strange feeling of being a stranger; the pictorial signs of a photograph is essential to it, as their inherent connections forms a narrative of the photograph; I am a fan of story-telling in photography,” he told Mehr News.

Nazemzadeh is quick to speak about his two other photographs of a collection ‘Narrative of Red Ropes,’ a huge collection of 500 photos featuring fishing in northern port of Anzali; “my subject in the collection was to feature their effort to bring something to the coast; the hardworking of a fisher who always grapples with the prospects of fishing nothing at all; however, the collection is as it is, and the atmosphere, the mode, and the sentiments are also featured,” he asserted.
