My Iran: Six Women Photographers

Malekeh Nayiny

Nayiny (born 1955, Tehran) left Iran to study photography and cinematography in the United States and France. Unable to return to Iran after the revolution, she settled in Paris where she lives and works today. Cut off from home and family, she turned to old family photographs to reconnect with her roots. She frequently utilizes digital manipulation to enliven and re-invent photographs from her own family album, blending the past with the modern day and bringing to life cherished memories.
