I was born in Iran in 1982. When I moved to London, I decided to buy a camera and start shooting in the middle of this strange city which was far different from my motherland. Eventually, I found photography interesting which gave me motivation and hope in a very lonely situation. My background as a painter gives me a passion to work with colours, different concepts and more likely portraits. Lately, I enjoy working with Persian stories and poems, exploring the tradition of these familiar tales and my relationship with them. They are all nostalgic in a sense that they drag me back to my roots.
