BEHIND THE LENS
When I was in medical school, my interest in film-making and photography made me take part in entrance exam of Iranian Youth Cinema Society which is a well-known film school in Iran where many of new leaders of Iranian Young Film Makers come from . I was accepted after getting the rank 1st and received a scholarship. I graduate in 2005 and photography and film-making remained with me as a part of my life.
I also have been interested in Poetry and poetry plays an important role in my daily life. I have been working on translation of poetry from Persian to English. I always carry my camera with me all the times either during early-morning walks or anytime I want to be connected to the essence of existence. For me photography and poetry have meditative values.
