”Aida Chehrehgosha has chosen to expose the forbidden, the secret, bringing it into the open light. She began telling her tales in elementary school, speaking of her background that was unlike her peers, not for the fact that she had been born in Tehran, Iran, but rather for the war being waged within her own family. Hate became the watchword in her early pictures, a word which demanded courage and longed for mutual insight and understanding. That childhood fear which stamped its seal upon her, creating the trauma conjured up in the extensive project entitled You’re the Ones To Blame, serves as the foundation for some 30 pictures, which she began staging in 2011. We are confronted by powerful, large-scale photographs, where Chehrehgosha displays some of the obsessive thoughts haunting her. ”
-Iréne Berggren, photo historian and curator.
Aida has dealt with themes as childhood trauma, family, mental illness, OCD, obsessions and nightmares in an ongoing project that has spun over 20 years. Often involving her own family and parents in her images. Always with a painstakingly honest and personal approach to her art.
