Amak Mahmoodian

14th March 2018 

Amak Mahmoodian was born in Shiraz in 1980. She is an Iranian photographer, film maker and curator living in the UK. Her work questions the identity, it expresses something personal, which pertains to a general issue.

For me the hallmark of photography is telling the truth, photographs are magical and full of mysteries. I explore my own identity through my projects and each project is a chapter of my life and a journey, inside and outside.
