these are the shadows cast by the clear, gossamer-like film of a virtual life wrapping itself ever-closer around the world. It is a response to this new suffocation and all its paranoia, pretending, its pretty pictures, its problems. It's about capturing a charade that has gone systemic, a game gone operational, a dimension lost to the digital.
By the way is this the right kind of length or were you looking for more? This is a variation...
For the discerning client, who appreciates its not just about the pixels but also the space between, Digital Lie understands that sometimes we can leave room for imagination rather than cluttering every corner.
We take our inspiration from around the world. Nature plays its part. We like the senses to be ....captivated.
They call me Ramtin Zanjani, born in 1979 in Tehran, Iran. I started in the fields of advertising and industrial photography in 1998, moving on to documentaries, fine arts and architecture photography, finally graduating with a BFA (applied art) from the University of Pune, India.
I am now based in Berlin, a city that allows me to bring everything together under one cohesive structure that can house and express my work with no restriction.
Art direction is the idea and force. Applied art is the means. Photography and print.
I am influenced-equally-by music, poetry and words. Stripping things down, removing the coating. It didn't happen straight away. It was a long journey. A process of reducing things to their essential aspects. Lines, colours, forms and rhythms-the very basics of the visual matters.
Digital lie shows my work as an evolving process of my mind. An overview of both commercial and personal. Snapshots and studies. There is no compromise in what I do. It is a one off, limited edition.
