Cesar Dezfuli was born in 1991 in Madrid, in a context of cultural mixture given his Spanish- Persian origins. Self-taught in photography and having learned his trade as a journalist in various newsrooms, he now works as a freelance photojournalist, focusing on humanitarian crisis and international affairs, with special attention in migration routes.
His work has been published in international media such as The Guardian, Time Magazine, El País, Süddeutsche Zeitung or Aljazeera, and recognized with several awards as the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize (UK), POY (USA) or Head On Photo Awards (Austalia), among others. It has also been part of individual and collective exhibitions worldwide, as in the National Portrait Gallery (UK), the Museum of Sydney (Australia), or Visa Pour L´Image (France).
