STATEMENT

Born in The Netherlands, from a Dutch mother and a Persian father,
I am fascinated by social position, heritage, identity and 'the other'.

A portrait can be uncomfortable yet comforting, interactive yet solitary. This duality is at the core of my work. My process of portraiture allows for a manipulation of this friction caused by the interaction of both photographer and subject, image and viewer.

I have as goal to create a thin line that communicates this tension to the new owner of the image: you, the public, the viewer. This imagery not only tells the story of the portrayed, but also serves as a reflection unto the self by evoking a response in the viewer. In revealing this, I hope to provoke additional depth and richness in the identity of the beholder.
