Navid Baraty: Earth

  • Posted by SHFT on March 10, 2014 in Photography
  • If you find the urge to pack up and wander the globe barely controllable at the best of times, this collection of photographs is likely to aggravate the condition. (It does for us, in any case.) Simply titled Earth, the series of images was shot by SHFT favorite Navid Baraty, who describes them succinctly as "photographs from my continuing travels around the planet." A committed wanderer, Baraty's love of travel has led him to explore some of the world’s most extreme and beautiful environments, on every continent.

    Born and raised in rural Ohio, photographer Navid Baraty's artistic passion led him from his unfulfilling days of working as an engineer to becoming a photographer in San Francisco and then New York City. He became obsessed with photography because of its universal ability to engage our senses and tell a story. Navid wants his work to accurately portray the human condition and shape the way people think about the Earth.
