Back To The Future

Artists: Arman Stepanian & Koriun Sarkissian
Exhibition Title: Back To The Future
Exhibition Date: 2/2/2009

Arman Stepanian was born in 1956, in Abadan, Iran. After completion of his high school studies, Arman developed an interest in graphic design and was admitted to Tehran University Fine Arts Department and obtained his Bachelor Degree in 1979.
Mr. Stepanian’s passion for photography led him to be involved in a very extensive research programme regarding the history of photography. After his completion of the research, he was fascinated with what he could discover in the world of photography and in 1998, started his career as a professional photographer. His vision was to bring back to life the work and art of legendary poets and artists, thus creating a pathway to the future. Arman uses his camera as a tool to create a way to bring out his own inner feelings and thoughts towards the human experiences of worry and sadness. Even though Arman received his degree in the 70’s, he is considered as a modern and subjective artist, which is the main difference between him and many other artists who work in a similar field.
