Editorial portrait and documentary photographer based in Chicago, Illinois.
I was born in Iran, grew up in France, and then moved to the United States where I attended college in Texas. After graduation I moved to California and now reside in Chicago, Illinois. I started photography as a portrait photographer. I aim to go beyond to just simply show what a person looks like, and see past the carefully curated persona in order to reveal a more intimate portrait. Character and emotion are the center points of my editorial portrait photography.
My photographs have been published in various national and international magazines and periodicals including:
The New York Times' Lens Blog
Investor's Business Daily
Crain's Business Journal
Today's Chicago Woman
Corriere Della Serra
Photo District News
