"Nature" Photographic Exhibit by Babak & Anne Razavi

This exhibit is a collection of photographs that attempt to capture nature – from vast skies to miniature rain drops on a single leaf.

In the photographers' own words, "The modern English word nature ultimately derives from the Latin word natus, past participle of nasci, meaning to be born. Every encounter with nature can certainly instill a new birth or beginning for appreciating its intricate composition. Yet, entangled in the bustles of modern life, we unknowingly overlook nature’s majestic beauty. Starting work before dawn and finishing it after dusk, we often forget that the day starts with sunrise and ends with sunset. Hurried walks to and from the parking lot leave little time to breath in the fresh smell of spring rain. We hope that these images inspire you to take a moment to enjoy nature at every level – the delicate beauty in an otherwise inconvenient ice storm or a colorful sky that is only a glance away during a long tiring flight home."

Babak Razavi is a trainee in the Medical Scientist Training Program pursuing an M.D. as well as a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering. His passion with photography began at a young age when his father taught him how to take pictures using a Canon AE-1 back in Iran. Anne Razavi worked as a medical physicist at the Wilmot Cancer Center and Department of Radiation Oncology. She trained at the Charité Hospital, Humboldt University of Berlin, Germany. She is now a product marketing manager with Siemens Medical Solutions. Babak and Anne both enjoy capturing a variety of themes including abstracts, nature, candids, weddings, and each other.
