is an Iranian-born independent photographer/filmmaker who lives in Montreal. He started photography and film-making at the age of 16 and received his B.A in Film Directing and M.A in Cinema Studies from the University of Art in Tehran. He moved to Canada in 2001 and after many years photography experiences in Iran and Canada, decided to expose his own uniquely-styled photography in 2012. Lonely women talking to the darkness, lonely women talking to the statues, lonely women talking to nature, lonely women looking for peace and freedom, lonely women tortured by religion (specifically Islam) are themes Arian has been attached to. He is the only Iranian photographer who is focusing in fine art nude photography and criticising religion with his unique style. The topics and the atmospheres in his artworks are about Loneliness, Women, Minimalism, Virulence, Absurdism, Death, Atheism, Tenebrism, Cultural Symbols, Nudity, Formalism, Eroticism and Criticising Religions. “Black Days, Red Nights” is his new exhibition in London (UK, 2017). It’s a compilation of old and new photographs expressing his viewpoint on Islam, women, and freedom.
