This project, named “The Space in Between”, has brought Milad the "Top Ten Photographers of the World” award of the contest. Here, Global Photography shares his opinions on this series and his photography spirit.


Global Photography: You named your photo series “All I did was stand and stare”. What were you trying to express with your work?

Milad Safabakhsh: During the last five years, I have gained good success in professional photography, and I have made good progress. The reason for this progress is in the first phase of my efforts, and after that, the extra-ordinary force or that helped me in this direction and played a significant role in my success.

The name of the collection I was "stand and stare" for this reason, because I believe that, apart from all the efforts that I have made for my successes, an extra-ordinary force also led me to my success, and I only I've been watching.

GP: Many of your subjects were buildings. Why do you think architecture works so well for minimalist and abstract photography?

Milad: Buildings, in turn, are a simple and abstract piece, and my interest in abstraction and minimalism attracted me to the shapes and angles of buildings, and I tried to record the new angles of the building in my photographs.

I also have to mention that I am a member of the Paradox of Architecture, which consists of 7 professional photographers from all over the world, which focuses on the architecture of photography that was originally from Facebook, which publishes and introduces the best works of architecture From the best photographers around the world.

GP: When you start a new project, what process do you follow?

Milad: In the first stage, it is the artist's concern. After finding the idea, the artist starts researching for the main topic of the work, choosing the best technique and achieving the desired result.

And the artist must trust his subconscious mind in all these stages. I also, by relying on my subconscious mind, make the ideas that come to my mind instantly, if possible, in the best way possible. For me, photography is a lifetime and I experience a new life during the process of every project.

GP: How has your style and technique evolved over time?

Milad: The style of any artist is derived from the imaginative consciousness and its inner and hidden morals, without which even the person himself notices it and during which time he shows himself in the works of the artist. For the photographer, it also becomes part of artistic photography.

You will find the technique in the experience; and you will find the research through reading the book and searching the Internet, and of course, the concern in this section is of great importance if you are concerned about the arts of art, you will be looking for it and you will have a lot of advances in its development during time.

GP: Are you experimenting with anything new at the moment?

Milad: I am currently involved with a project that has just begun and needs a lot of time to complete. Its idea and concept is about "dark matter," which is a purely scientific debate.

In short, the world we live in consists of 27% of dark matter and 68% of the universe is Dark energy, only 5% of that is normal matter, which is the only normal element we can see with our eyes in the universe.
