Sharareh Samei, photographer

 
Sharareh Samei was born in Iran. She studied western philosophy at university and she is a self-taught photographer since 2008, having her first exhibition, a social documentary, in 2011. In 2012, she started specializing in theater photography and had been part of six group exhibitions since. In 2013, she started working as a journalist and has been a photographer for an Iranian Arts News Agency since 2014.
 
One of her deep concerns is the Afghan immigrant women whose rights and womanhood have been very much ignored due to war and insecurity in their country.  Sharareh shares a mini series “wifman” on women in her country.
