Nighttime; Escape Zone
"I labeled every alley and street with the name of the music I was listening to." "I stood in front of the houses, listening to the sound of the street at night and my chosen song in silence."
Sahar Khosravi's photographs in the collection "Nighttime; Escape Zone" represent moments when she escapes in the presence of music, the city, night, and observation, as she says it, in safety.
Initially, the goal of compiling this collection was to express personal emotional conflicts and incidents that occurred at the time. However, after further reflection on such experiences, it became clear to me that this is a struggle that we, as a young generation in Iran, all face in different ways. That is why I decided to depict this universal conflict.
The name of my collection is "Deprivation, حرمان" which means hopelessness and frustration in Persian. Because it reflects how we are currently frustrated and terrified.
