Ali Shokri (Persian : علی شکری) is an Iranian landscape photographer.


Ali Shokri was born in Tabriz,1982 . is a consummate artist with a camera. These landscapes seem almost too perfect to exist and yet they do. Whilst creating precise images with intense detail, Ali has captured the ‘phenomenal’ : mists, haze, light, calm, glare….In short, an overwhelming sense of atmosphere. Almost painting-like in their beautiful compositions and movement, these vistas invite many hours of meditative relaxation. Ali’s scenery seems almost otherworldly and this is an artist equally at home with rich warm colouration or stark monochromatic snowscenes.

To me, each tree, like a human-being, has a tale to tell. When a tree dies, a whole story is interrupted, a destiny is altered for the worse. I feel as if the trees, bundled at the back of trucks, are cursing us with their broken hands, wounded faces, and severed roots. Perhaps this is how we are led towards damnation, little by little stripped of our humanity, when man’s “abounding foliage moistened with the dew” is reduced to ash and smoke.[1]
