Currently based in Vienna, David Avazzadeh is a self-taught photographer whose work appears within the recurring setting of various natural environments. Over the course of two years, Avazzadeh made a series of visits to the Dolomites, a corner of the Alps in northeastern Italy. Taking as inspiration the ‘optical phenomena’ of the mountain range, the photographer captures ‘Force Majeure’ – a collection of images that intervene with the vast, visceral landscape, both physically and in post-production. Avazzadeh describes the study as “a series of disconnected interventions, staged arrangements and encountered alienations,” and explains a desire to “not only to capture the mystical beauty of nature but to break with preconceived ideas of beauty, realism and truth.”
