5: Shirin Houshian

I am drawn to the beauty and complexity of large, open indoor spaces. I am particularly interested in the way that atmospheric lighting can be used to create a sense of mood and emotion within architecture.
In the studio, I often incorporate Persian carpets into my compositions to add texture and depth to my photographs. These carpets bring a sense of my own history and cultural richness to the work, and I am fascinated by how they can be used to create visually striking and thought-provoking
images through my abstract photography.
