Camellia Rajabi


edited by Francesco Ciotola

Camellia Rajabi was born in 1986, in Tehran.

She is currently working in the field of photography Fine art - Documentary.

Camellia has started painting with a different look at the world, and has inscribed her thoughts on the paper using hand printing technique; the everyday life of people had occupied her whole mind. 

In the second decade of her life and upon graduation in the field of Visual connections (Graphics) from the university, Camellia decided to travel in order to get familiarized with the various culture and customs of her country.

"These travels had made me face quite different lives of people; I used my camera to register such moments. At each stage of everyday life, I was waiting, and prepared to choose something which visually astonished me. A different look at the world: with all its ugliness and all its beauties, something to take my breath away. Sometimes a piece of nature, or a gesture or a look, the intensity of a color or the playfulness of light; I recorded all of these with the help of my camera."

"Afterwards, I decided to follow the path of photography more seriously and I had started working as a press photographer. By participation in the various festivals, as well as domestic & international group exhibitions, I had decided to make the world see my view. At the moment, photography is the most delightful and interesting concern of mine which transcends me to a new, more beautiful and much more different appearance."

Camellia is an official member of the FIAP International Photography Association and of the Iranian Visual Arts Association.
