RETINA_Custom-House.jpgI was born in Tehran in 1978. I moved to London in my early 20’s to study and I have been living in Scotland for the past 10 years.

My great grandfather was a royal portrait painter and my mother is a tapestry weaver; artistic blood runs in the family.

I consider myself a conceptual photographer. Photography for me is a way to communicate ideas and express creativity. My work varies from documentary, fashion and portraiture to fine art. Irrespective of subject the themes running through my work always remain deeply personal.
