Born in Iran in 1966 Cyrus Javid lived there until he was 25. He migrated to the United States in 1991 and became a US citizen in 1999.
Mostly a self-taught photographer, Cyrus strives to be better with every photograph. Line, color, shape, form, texture, balance, movement, pattern, and proportion are integral parts of his images. Through their use, he hopes to create images that are unique, and to offer his viewers a new perspective. Javid loves color images but dreams in black and white.
The images in this exhibition were made a few years ago. Javid’s adventure took him to Casablanca; Rabat, with its green hills by the Atlantic ocean; Fes, with its ancient winding medina; Ouarzazate, the gateway to the Sahara Desert, with its shifting colored sands; the rugged twisted roads of the Atlas Mountains; and finally, the amazing Marrakech, where spice and argon oil souks and snake charmers fill the long winding alleys of Jamaa-el-fna.
