Novi/Arte represents the fine art photography of Iranian photographer Mos Merab Samii (Rasht, Iran, 1943). After many trips in his own country, Merab Samii ended up in the Netherlands. As a tender 10 year old boy, armed with a Kodak fold camera that he got from his father, he started photographing as a hobby. Only in recent years did Mos evolve with his fascinating still lifes into a master of light, inspired by the Old Masters.
His power lies in the mimicking of composition and light which he, unlike anyone else, captures perfectly. His still lifes take us back in time and never bore or disappoint. Still lifes that will endure time.
