Included in 500px ‘s (the most popular photo sharing website) list of best fine art is a beautiful and moving image of a lonely man, walking down a road, called “Passenger”. The photographer’s name is Hossein Zare . Remember that name.
A contributing photographer at Fotoblur, a creative photography community and publisher of Fotoblur Magazine , the one in question, is based in Bushehr, Iran, Land of the Aryans. He is new and very welcome in the branche. And his stunning work is definitely worth every minute of exploring. Powerful, spectacular and yet truly minimal images orchestrate an ode to the lonely heroes that are now already haunting our minds – through his lens.
We already knew that the blossoming of Persian literature, philosophy, medicine, astronomy, mathematics and art became major elements of one of the oldest civilizations of the world, the Iranian culture. It’s photography’s time now, we bet.
