I think separation and loneliness are the main themes of the century. Everyone either suffers from loneliness or worries about being alone or still doesn't realize they are alone.
The reason I chose this collection was that these days I think the quarantine and social distancing of all people can comfort those who are always alone.
In this series, the order of the photos is important.
The first photo talks about the moment of farewell, and the next photo shows the loneliness of a person. In the same way until the end.
I have to say that these photos are not staged. I look everywhere for my specific stories, all of which come from poetry. My own or others' poems. I try to create something emotional.
AUTHOR: Ramtin Firouzian (Iran, Islamic Republic Of)
I am a freelance photographer and cinematographer, as well as a poet from Iran, a bachelor's degree in dramatic literature who has been photographing seriously for more than twenty years. I published two architectural photo books and had several group and festival exhibitions, and also, won a number of diplomas and awards.
For the past five years or so, I've put aside all the photography genres I've done before and I took only black and white photos with my favorite style, images that make me feel satisfied and I call them my visual poems.
