Represented by Gallery Felix Frachon

Tahmineh Monzavi, born in 1988 in Tehran, is a socially conscious photographer. She began her professional career as a documentary photographer in 2005.

Tahmineh Monzavi received the Sheed Award for excellence in social documentary photography (independent non- government award with internationally renowned photographers as the panel of judges). Her works have been exhibited nationally and internationally: Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), MAXXI museum of Roma, Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris and many others.

Tahmineh Monzavi is also known as a film director and producer. Sometimes her photography and film work merge into one continuous subject of artistic exploration. For example, the Grape garden alley series in 2010-2012 developed into a feature length documentary film about a shelter for addicted women in Tehran. As a co-director Tahmineh received international recognition with the film About the Salesman (2018).
