About Me

Born in Iran 1982, When I moved to London, I decided to buy a camera and start shooting in a middle of strange city which was far different from my motherland. Eventually I found photography interesting which gave me a motivation and hope in a very lonely situation.My background as a painter gives me a passion to work with colors, different concepts and more likely portraits. As an artist I would like to combine these two wide spectrums; painting and photography and come up with unique and innovative ideas. Literally I enjoy to work with Persian story and poem the tradition of these familiar tales and my relationship to them.They are all nostalgic in a sense that dragging me in to my roots.
