I've spent much of my childhood time talking to trees and believing I was a constellation. I made dolls and invisibility cloaks from broken rhinestones, spit, dirt, fantasy, and wisps of hair. I obsessively collected rocks and obsidian arrowheads. My perspective is largely influenced by the confluence of cultural contradictions that exist within me as a first-generation Afghan/American woman. My lens is a bridge to my inner and outer worlds - reflecting dreamscapes and serendipity, textures and melodic structures, breakdowns and breakthroughs, and the triviality and apocalypse of our times. I have my BFA in Photography from College of Santa Fe and my MA from the United Nations University. I'm the Co-Founder and Director of Kindle Project - an experimental foundation supporting underdogs, artists, and institutional fuck-ups. I would like to bend spoons with my eyeballs and perfect the art of flying in my dreams.
