The Emotion of Architecture – Photography by Behrouz Riahi:
The talent of Behrouz Riahi – better known by his alias “Zardo” – is instantly recognized. His use of distorted perspectives and vertical compositions instantly draw your attention to his hauntingly beautiful work that is rarely seen in architectural photography. When combined with his incredible tonal range and suspenseful color palatte, he is able to create the perfect atmosphere that is reminiscent of a Tim Burton film. Behrouz is one of my most favorite photographers, and I am honored to share his work with the Photography Blogger community.
“Behind Zardo, my real name is Behrouz Riahi. I’m born in 1985. I am Belgian and I live in Bruxelles. I am a Psychologist. I really began photography when I was 19 years old and have pursued it actively for 7 years. Before taking pictures I liked writing some dark poetry. The problem was that illustrating my thoughts only with words soon became too restricted. I wanted to show how I saw the world. It is why I began with photomanipulation before photography. But the problem with photomanipulation is the fact that it is not real. With photos and the technique I use, I found the way to show the world as I see it.
As a conclusion, I would like to say that photography is a way for me to leave a world and live in another. When I take my photographs, time stops. There is nobody with me. Photography is a method for me to share with others what is inside me. It is a pleasure to take them and then to share them.”
