I am a Spanish-Iranian photographer, videographer & visual artist. Driven by that texture of identity, culture, and upbringing, my work combines portraiture and storytelling and disrupts it with a sensibility of color, playfulness, and mixed media. Using collage, object, personal history, and words, I look to thoughtfully create a poetic, informed, and cathartic space from which to better understand my place in the world and to infuse my subjects with the possibility of their own empowerment and self-preservation with fantasy. My work spans the arenas of editorial, video, music, fine art, fashion, and reportage. Working on personal and commissioned projects. Currently based in Spain. Available worldwide.
