A shadow is described as an area where direct light from a light source cannot reach because of an obstruction by an object. The manipulation of shadows for entertainment purposes have always intrigued mankind, which in time have brought life to things like shadow play and shadow puppets. Photographers too find capturing shadows or including shadows in their pictures interesting, as it requires a certain set of skills to use the available lighting to portray the photographer’s message effectively.
From today until the 30th October 2011, the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (klpac) presents a photography exhibition entitled Human-Shadow-Movement by Iman Pirzadeh. Pirzadeh was born in Iran in 1982 and graduated with a Degree in Interior Architecture. Photography is a way for him to share his experience in communicating with different people and all the things that is surrounding him. He decided to follow his heart and pursued his passion later in life. He began taking photographs in 1999 as a way to open his eyes to what is around him. He later chose to adopt photography as his profession and set up his own studio in 2001. The photography exhibition is now going on at klpac, Pentas 2 foyer and is open to public from 10.00 am onwards. Admission is free.
