Heja Rahiminia’s Photography
The artist manipulates black and white photographs to vehicle ideas around social and political inequality. Heja's aerial landscape shots tend to be minimalist and conceptual in style. His bird's-eye view aesthetic is at once all-consuming and detached, making for works which resound with ambivalency. By sensitively exploiting height, deep contrast and the placement of anonymous, ant-like figures, Heja gives observers the chance to consider the magnitude of global migration, especially in the context of war and forced displacement.
Collections and Exhibitions
