Beam me there
Capturing the beauty and serenity of nature in Iran
Photographs by Elahe Moghadam
March 20, 2000
Elahe Moghadam's serene photographs of nature in Iran
have a most calming effect. They seem to say that despite all the political
upheavals, the breathtakingly beautiful essence that is Iran remains intact
and will live on.
The images transport us on top of majestic mountains, under a grand
old tree, in a field of wild flowers, and on the edge of turquoise blue
lakes. I wish I could say, "Beam me there, there and there, Scotty!"
Born in 1971 in Kermanshah, Elahe Moghadam has been a professional photographer
since 1993, specializing in nature, social documentary and historical buildings.
Her current exhibition is the result of thousands of kilometers of travels
to different parts of Iran.
