Hossein was born in 1985 in Isfahan, Iran. After graduating from university in Tehran with an M.Sc degree in Geomorphology as well as a strong education in IT, he emigrated to the UAE, and after a short time, resettled in the Caucasus region of Georgia. Currently, he lives in the Netherlands for studying "Photography" at The Royal Academy of Art University in The Hague.
While living in Georgia and working in a media art studio, he became interested in photography. Initially, he began taking pictures of his surroundings with his phone’s camera. After a while, he pursued the field of photography with a professional camera and began to learn and advance in this profession in a self-instructive manner.
Since he considers the world around him from a realistic perspective, his photography subjects are affected by this viewpoint.
Hence, first in the context of street photography and portraits and later in documentary photography, he began to record the grief, happiness, social actions, and problems in his surrounding community. Within two years of entering the world of professional photography, he has attained several awards and achievements in various international competitions, including the Sony World Photography Awards, International Photography Award (IPA), Monochrome Photography Awards, The Independent Photographer, ND awards, Monovision Photography Awards, All About Photo Awards, and more. Moreover, he has exhibited his work in several countries, including the United States, Greece, Germany, and Hungry.
At the moment, he is working on several long-term projects in the country of Georgia.
