My passion to create is driven by my bicultural background as an Iranian-American. My work is a reflection of culture as well as the self, pursuing distinct and obscure emotions in an attempt to create a narrative and connect with humanity.
My current series of photographs titled NYC is an ongoing project that began in 2013. This collection of environmental portraits is of strangers I have met along the way while living in the city. The process involves, finding native New Yorkers, spending a night at their home and photographing them while they sleep. [Official Website]
