‘Symphony of Faces’ is a limited selection of Rahi’s work over the years. Much like a symphony is composed of different instruments, each with its own timbre and personality, under the direction of a conductor to create a unique, captivating musical masterpiece, ‘Symphony of Faces’ is a composition of different faces, people and themes. Each with its own character, energy and story, brought together through Rahi’s vision and direction. A collection that showcases his distinctive style.
“Touching emotions of others with my work, that is the only thing that matters to me”
From the very beginning of my journey as a photographer, my path intertwined seamlessly with Leica. However, it's the Leica M camera, and more significantly, the Leica M lenses, that have been my steadfast companions. These tools are not just instruments; they are the bridge that translates my deepest emotions and visions into tangible imagery.
In essence, my relationship with Leica M and its lenses is beyond technicality; it's a deeply rooted emotional connection. They echo my feelings, capture my thoughts, and bring them to life. They are not just optics; they are storytellers that paint my narratives with precision and artistry. In this dynamic dance of emotions and imagery, Leica M cameras and its lenses remain my partner, my canvas, and my voice.
I want to express my gratitude to all the individuals captured in the images of this exhibition and, more broadly, to every face that has been a part of my journey. Your presence has enriched my work in countless ways. Thank you. Rahi Rezvani.
About Rahi Rezvani
Rahi is an Iranian-born artist based in the Netherlands. An alchemist who pours his soul into his images. He is constantly searching for the chemical reaction that can take place between him, the shutter of his camera and his subject. Whether photographing ensembles, world-famous artists or everyday obsessions, he works instinctively. His persistence and humbleness allow him to capture the unique energy that arises when he and his subjects come together. In each image he unlocks both the light and the dark. Rahi shows how they merge harmoniously, revealing the way in which light emerges from the beauty of darkness.
