Towards Esfahan

Fari Bahi

I was born in Iran on December 7th, 1967. The first time I took a picture was about the age of eight with a very old 120 camera with bellows. I photographed my brother, our home and also my pets. Later, about the age of fifteen, I started more seriously to take pictures. I made a very small darkroom in my bathroom and I processed my own films. I became more and more experienced in my friends labs and darkrooms with manual and automatic machines. When I moved to Belgium at the age of 19, I slowly changed my subjects from Landscape and portraits to candid shots and photojournalism. I traveled around Europe, Pakistan, India and Iran to take pictures. I studied artistic photography at Institut des Beaux Arts St. Luc de Liege (Belgium).
