I was born 1996 in Tehran, Iran.

In 2003, I immigrated with my family to Germany, after what I lived and socialized parallel in two cultures. My interest in Photojournalism grew in my early teenage years and got more visible after I took a basic class in photography in 2011.

Since 2014, I study Photojournalism and Documentary Photography in Hanover and spent a year in Iran to understand my origin in 2016/2017. I want my work to be about humanitarian and social issues as like the questions about identity. But actually, I am too young to limit and reduce myself. I want to know stories and retell them. I get easily fascinated and will show stories that touched me and I think that are necessary to be told and seen.
