PARSA JAMALPOUR IS A FINE-ART PHOTOGRAPHER.
In Lost Princess, Fine-Art Photographer Parsa Jamalpour invites us to view his depiction of disconnection between the ‘modern us’ and our souls.
He believes, as human beings, we’ve somehow lost our way, our sense of self and our identity. Surrounded by a myriad of high-end technology, he thinks we’re somehow more lost than ever before. We live in a world where we find ourselves wandering somewhat aimlessly in search of constant self-satisfaction.
This exhibition, while built on whimsy, is an attempt by this photographic artist to create a sense of mystery in these lost, somehow timeless worlds – tinged with darkness and fear, yet full of beauty and promise.
The images in Lost Princess use light as a common prop. For Parsa, it represents the soul, and he uses it as an expression of our inner lives – that which makes us human.
Exploring femininity and female power is a recurring theme in his work. Here, the females he depicts appear unconscious, left in a state of suspended animation; perhaps waiting for a reboot of some kind. He uses the lantern as a symbol for whatever might help us overcome that which dwells in the darkness of our lives, or has us ‘suspended’.
“Light equals hope – it creates a sense of the soul, the inner life that radiates from within us – the essence of what makes us human,” he says.
“I try to create a feeling of weightlessness that allows the viewer to escape into the world of my photographs, even if just for a moment.”
