The Space in Between by Milad Safabakhsh


Milad Safabakhsh  is an Iranian  Fine Art photographer. He  started photography with minimalism and slowly moved towards conceptual photography. However he still kept his minimalistic view in all of his works.  Milad was able to make a name for himself internationally and was even achieved numerous prizes.

Milad was always fascinated by the world of holography and after reading Micheal Talbot’s book ” The Holographic Universe” and many more after, the concept of holographic changed his perspective and the way he saw everything. He launched a series dedicated to holography recently and I named it “The Space in Between”. The reason of it is that the observers are in the middle of a dark space and this dark space represents their thoughts and perspectives about this universe.


There is evidence to suggest that our world and everything in it-from snowflakes to maple trees to falling stars  and spinning electrons-are also only ghostly images, projections from a level of reality so beyond our own it is literally beyond both space and time.


We are perceivers. We are an awareness; we are not objects; we have no solidity. We are boundless. The world of objects and solidity is a way of making our passage on earth convenient. It is only a description that was created to help us. We, or rather our reason, forget that the description is only a description and thus we entrap the totality of ourselves in a vicious circle from which we rarely emerge in our Lifetime.
