Zia and Art of Northwest Light

Zia Mohajerjasbi, the cinematographer for Thin Skin, recently released a trailer for a project called The Charcoal Sky, which is mostly set in Seattle and concerns personal stories told by a variety of people. Zia–who directed, photographed, and edited the work–describes it as “experiential storytelling from everyday folks, captured in the aesthetic of cinematic monologue.” I think there are only a few cinematographers who appreciate the beauty of the light in the Pacific Northwest as deeply as Zia. It is one of the stars of The Charcoal Sky.

Zia was also the cinematographer for the music video of Fleet Foxes’ new cut “Fool’s Errand.”
