Queen Gallery presents Punctum Studium, a duo photography exhibition featuring the works of Ziba Loghmani and Reza Eslami from November 14-25. Attend the Opening Reception on November 15 from 7-9pm.
A tribute to Roland Barthes and his book “Camera Lucida” – “Studium operates in the arena of liking, while Punctum operated in the arena of loving”.
Reza Eslami is a published Canadian-Iranian architect and poet who captures both in his photography. Since the age of 15, Reza has been actively engaged with drawing, photography and writing poetry and has had two photography exhibitions, one in 1998 and the second on in 2001.
Ziba Loghmani is an Iranian-Canadian Urban Planner. Her interests in Photography and Psychology directed her to see the objects and spaces around her from a conceptual point of view. She is a screen play writer that had been the student of one of the most famous Iranian photographers and cinema directors, Nasser Taghvaei for more than five years, an honour that she cherishes forever. Nasser Taghvaei’s emphasis on importance of closing a proper frame gave Ziba a new approach to the world of photography.
