by Gohar Dashti

Gohar Dashti’s haunting images highlight the absence of occupation. Nature is the new inhabitant, adding texture and beauty to crumbling facades and interiors. The emptiness tells it’s own story, posing questions that reach beyond the limits of the frame, beyond the moment now frozen in time. 

After studying photography in Iran, Dashti has spent the last 12 years creating images concerning social issues, referencing history and culture through a convergence of anthropology and sociology. Her interest is in the world around her, and her starting point is her personal perception of her surroundings, her relationship to society and the world she inhabits. Dashti’s practice continuously develops from life events and connections between the personal and the universal, the political and the fantasised.
