Personal details

Mahdiyeh Afshar bakeshloo (Persian: مهدیه افشار بکشلو (is an Iranian fine art photographer. she was born in 1995 in Tehran (Iran).

about my works:

My works consist of black and white photos and their style mostly is fine art, conceptual or photo manipulation. Most of the time I follow geometry and some sort of rhythm in my works.

Whenever I work my feeling reflects on my work and shaped them whit my inner thought. I would like to get a common point with them in order to speak with them.

When I show my photos to people I like them to find questions and try to find answer. I don’t tend to explain everything so I prefer them to engage with them.

Each of my project explains human feeling such as sadness, loneliness, Confusion. I try to make viewers find their hidden feeling in my photos.

I most of the time inspired by painter like Salvador Dali or Rene Magrtte. Their paintings are the beginning of my inspiration and nature help me to imagine what I am looking for. I like to have repeat in my photo and nature with its repeat and cycle help me a lot.

I mostly take photos from everywhere and then I use every piece in my project. I try to make new space with high contrast. I try to break the law by creating weird environment which reflects on my feeling.

When I decide to become friend it was hard for the first time because I have to change with it regardless I like it or not. But after a while I realize art means changing what it is here and make new thing.
