‘Big Fish’ to Be Displayed in Toronto

The latest collection of works by Bandar Abbas photographer Morteza Niknahad is scheduled to go on display in Toronto in February 2017.  
The collection, titled Big Fish, will be displayed at Arta Gallery for 12 days.
The exhibit includes 10 color images 1x1 meters and portrays 18 members of Niknahad’s family. It is the photographer’s personal interpretation of a true experience.
“One night in the mid 1990s my mother had a nightmare which opened a difficult chapter in our lives; she contracted an odd disease. The doctors said it had roots in emotional suffering, remnants of past events,” Niknahad told Financial Tribune.
After the nightmare his mother lapsed into a long episode of depression. More than a decade passed before she opened up about the disturbing dream.
“She spoke of an unidentified and horrendous living entity that had rapidly grown in her nightmare, leaving her in a state of limbo from which she was struggling to wake up.”
Big Fish is a personal interpretation of twenty years of observation of a woman who has been living with a wounded monster. The big fish symbolizes the monster and is repeated in the pictures of his collection.
Niknahad, 32, is filmmaker and photographer.  His last solo exhibition titled ‘Public Place’ was on display at Tehran’s Azad Art Gallery in July.
