Noushin Ourmazd Photography


Post revolution the social and economical changes have transformed Iran by force to a very unbalanced and confused society.

My Manzel series embodies the stories that are unknown and not at first apparent.  I photographed Iranian men, women and children in their environments, where they are more relent. I am curious what lies behind their eyes, who they are and who they desire to be. I would like to acquire an awareness of Iranian families in their intimate surrounding, even though feeling more secure, but still with a trace of confusion in their eyes. Although tired but still hold their hopes and their heads high.

In my Photography I am interested in finding something invisible and hidden in us, the essence of human ability in adaptation for survival. My choice of subject comes from a place of intuition and is fuelled by a vigorous desire to partake in the stories that unfold in society. Some of my subject matter is about people's daily routines and their intimate environments.
