I am a photographer, videographer & visual artist currently based in Zaragoza by way of New York and Seattle but also by way of Spain and Iran because that is my makeup. Driven by the texture of identity and the cultural backbone that holds you, my work spans to celebrate and carve out space and visual capital for people of color and the pulse of our evolving narratives across audio-visual vignettes, disrupted portraiture, and mixed media collage. Bringing together images that curiously react to one another, I use collage, object, personal history, and words as a poetic, informational, and cathartic space from which to better understand my place in the world and to infuse the possibility of empowerment and self-preservation with fantasy. Working on personal and commissioned projects. Available worldwide.
