Social sciences research + Photography = Has turned me into a documentary filmmaker


I am an Iranian photographer and emerging documentary filmmaker. I have an academic background in social sciences and a keen eye for capturing natural beauty and human dynamics. I combine these two assets along with my International perspective to tell visual stories. I am currently working on a feature documentary about a specific US public land that encompasses some of the most captivating landscapes in this country. I am interested in the people's relationship with the land, beauty and home, and how all that results in their biases and actions.
