Aida Chehrehgosha’s photographic art is as dark as it is strong. In each carefully curated frame, she paints a picture of unease, but also of beauty. What has happened in the homes she portrays?
Aida Chehrehgosha's photography
Her strong story-telling speaks to both the established art world and viewers without any knowledge of her previous work, and in this collaborative project, The Balcony, she tells the story of a girl who asked herself the question “Is it high enough”?
“A seed that was planted and refused to change shape. I who always thought it grew into something else. It grew into something bigger, do not misunderstand me, but it did not become the beauty that I thought it would be. She who stood on the edge of the balcony, she who thought of jumping probably never thought that there would be so much life after that day.”

THE BALCONY 1-3 - LIMITED EDITION OF 5
In her photographs, Aida Chehrehgosha addresses issues of guilt and sorrow, where the feeling of pain may derive from the past, or from fantasy. In the series of 'The Balcony' she goes back to her childhood, and the difficult choices she had to face. It could've been manifested as only darkness, but as always her humor is present, making 'The Balcony' disarm the anxiety-tinged associations.
