With the same right that Paris is called “City of Light” we may say that New York should be called “City of Color”. That polychromatic nature is one of the city’s characteristics, something I learned from a doctor and artist friend, David Abelson, when he was living in New York (he now lives in Tel Aviv). In some wonderful watercolors, David was able to show the incredible variety of colors in the New York sky. Thus, my untrained eyes began seeing the marvelous palette of the city that seems to be pulsating with color and energy in the most unexpected places. An Iranian-American photographer, Kamran Sabahi, brings the city to life with a series of images that makes us see the city in a new, different and very appealing light. Those who see his images of the city will not be able to see New York in the same way again.
Kamran Sabahi is a New York City visual artist, and all of his images start with an idea, a story to tell. His work shows New York in so many different ways, from his fascination of architecture, nature to the energy of the countless people from different parts of the world.
