Kiarash Eghbali was born in 1994 in Tehran, Iran. He got interested in photography from an early age and started to learn photography on his own while travelling around Iran. Being a self-taught photographer, he has selected and nominated in many festivals in his home country and across the globe. Studying Economics and development interested him to tell the story of those who are in fragile neighbourhoods. Due to that, he currently is working on two ongoing long term projects centred around poverty, development and living conditions in Tehran suburbs.
