Hossein (born in 1985 in Iran) initially interested in street photography, his focus eventually shifted onto documentary photography and portraiture. Fascinated with the contours of the earth (holding a BS in cartography and an MS in geomorphology), he felt drawn to study the contours of the human spirit more closely through photography.

Questions of society, humankind, and identity continue to orient his art. He is currently undertaking photography research at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, the Netherlands.
