Echoes of Light

Mehran Naghshbandi

This series has been shot along the shoreline of the Caspian Sea. A sea that beholds an unsightly view most of the times. A pale brown surface of pure mediocrity. This is a place that has also lost most of its inhabitants due to contamination and the discharge of sewage in the past few decades, yet this sea turns extraordinary alive while raging during the cold seasons. Fragments of waves after waves crashing in the dark at night, just as you could feel the presence of living things by hearing them breathing in utter darkness, as for me I tried to depict the sea’s life through the echoes of lights.
