The Nature of Light

at Herrick Gallery

Azadeh Ghotbi’s latest series, The Nature of Light, was entirely shot in Norway earlier this year. The exhibition examines the alchemy and interplay between light, time, movement and space, and at times, the subject of impermanence and paradox within visual reality.


The artist is married to a Norwegian and has spent years exploring the country’s magnificent landscapes, this time around Valdres. The series explores visual wonderment and delves into emotional sensitivity towards fleeting beauty within nature, what the Japanese call the concept of “mono no aware”: heightened empathy and appreciation towards transience of one’s environment.
