Negeen Sobhani is an incredibly talented photographer whose photos of the Shrine of the Bab are my all-time favourites. To celebrate the Birth of the Bab, I thought I’d share a visual feast with you and I hope that Negeen’s eye for colour, composition and detail leaves you feeling as uplifted as I feel when I gaze at her photographs.
Some say that the Shrine of the Bab and its surrounding gardens are so beautiful that it is difficult to take a poor photo of them but Negeen’s photos capture the serenity, the vibrancy and the elegance of this special place unlike anyone else. Whenever I look at her work, I feel myself slowing down and absorbing every little richness, as if I were there. The physical beauty of the Shrine of the Bab and its terraced gardens are a physical representation, or a hint, of the spiritual beauty of the Bab’s revelation which Baha’is all over the world celebrate on the anniversary of His birth.
