Pezhman was born in 1976 in Shiraz – the center of Iran’s cultural civilization. He and his family were forced to leave just three years later after the country became consumed by revolution. Since his adolescence in the United States, Pezhman has been exploring both natural and urban environments through photography. A passionate environmentalist, he thrives outdoors where he gains peace and introspection. Not solely relegated to rural setting, however, Pezhman finds cities equally enticing, noticing a unique history and character behind every architectural detail of the urban streets.
Instructors of the Photography and Cinema program at the Atlanta College of Art encouraged Pezhman to experiment with various forms of photographic expression, including architecture, portraits, and location shooting. With an extensive and impressive portfolio, he earned a position as photography assistant at a prominent local studio. This applied training greatly enhanced his photographic techniques and encouraged the evolution of his own style. Deciding to make a professional career from his talent, Pezhman subsequently entered the New York School of Photography, where he honed his skills in the medium format camera.
Pezhman continues to pursue professional photography in Atlanta. His work is continually displayed and collected across the United States.
