Entry Description

I shot this in a dog park in Montreal, QC. This toy truck was "left out" probably by a kid and this scene gave me an extreme feeling of loneliness. The clouds were kind enough to diffuse the sunlight letting me capture the feeling I got in that moment.

About Photographer

I am an Industrial Engineer by education, a Management Consultant by career and a Photographer by passion. I was born and raised in Tehran, Iran and then moved to USA and currently live in Los Angeles, California. I am a self-taught photographer whose photos challenge the audience both visually and intellectually. I take snapshots of ordinary life’s beauties, which remain unnoticed, and often include a twist to make the audience contemplate on them. I have my own style of photography, which often reflects a strong composition and a unique vision. In fact, I seldom plan to shoot a specific subject or use a specific style. I just pack my camera and go out exploring. When something interesting catches my eye, I take out my camera, fine tune that composition, take several photos and leave…this is simply my style!
