I'm a Melbourne based Iranian- Australian photographic and visual artist. Human rights and human interactions with one another and the rest of the world are an essential part of my photography. My wife and I took refuge in Australia and are unable to go back to Iran. Looking at the world through my camera strikes a balance between my past and present worlds enabling me to resist and subvert and love. The balance between light and darkness that I achieve through my camera is my way of creating poetry, depicting songs of resistance and celebration.
