Artist, researcher

She graduated from the University of Tehran and completed  a Master’s in Photography and Urban Cultures at Goldsmiths, UoL. Currently, she is a PhD candidate in Arts and Humanities at Birkbeck, UoL. Her work has been exhibited in Tehran, London and New York. Her photo-series Khazarshahr, has recently been published by The Velvet Cell publication in London.

As a practicing artist, I am interested in examining the ways in which photography relates to social theories, mainly that of urbanism. My work for the past few years has dealt with issues of place attachment, politics of space  and social mobility.  While at EOFA, I will  focus on the politics of travel as it appears in arrangements and regulations, by which the procedure of mobility from one country to another is governed and controlled. As a traveller,  I aim to explore different aspects of such arrangements  through my trip to Geneva.
