Event Details

The Sustainable Photography, Solo show by Mona Miri, will consist of eco-friendly photographs by Mona Miri from the past 15 years of her career as a Fine Art Photographer. The selected photographs from her Modified, Natural  and  Industrial series is part of the concept of her Sustainable Photography in content, process and environmental advocacy. In her Modified series we observe the landscapes as it’s being altered, changed and built within the environment in the ever progressing speed of our city life. Her Natural series depicts the beauty, essence and simplicity of the natural and untouched beauty of the environment. We also observe in the image “ Melting Glacier “ how the effects of climate change has effected the most sensitive glacier park in the US. In her Industrial series, the collection represents the constant resources of industries within our surrounding cities as an objective view point. There is a beauty yet a grim    take on the visual representation of these photographs.

The photographs are exclusively printed on sustainable Bamboo paper. All her frames  are made by hand from reclaimed wood, Mona has picked them herself, painted and assembled them. Mona has worked closely with the Arbor Day foundation by planting trees every year in our national forests. As well as a off-setting her carbon emission with Sterling Planet. 20 trees will be planted for the show as well when visitors sign for her email list or purchase a postcard, $1 will be donated to plant 1 tree under their name.

Mona Miri, a Fine Art Photographer for more than 15 years, has translated her unique perspective of her immediate environment through contemporary and traditional Photography. Mona’s style appropriately represents the struggle of change.
