Amak Mahmoodian

Photographer @

I’m an Iranian documentary photographer, film maker and curator living and working in the UK.

My academic background has been in Photography (BA , Art University of Tehran), Documentary Photography (MA , Art University of Tehran) and Double Identity, images of women in Iran (PhD, South Wales University).

Using a structure that evokes the classic Middle Eastern collection of oriental stories, my research explores the subtleties of specific codes of conduct that influence a person’s behaviour, relationships, sense of self and identity, which I represent through different media such as photography, video and text.

I have been participated in several exhibitions and festivals in Iran and in the UK.
