Biography

Mojgan Ghanbari was born in Tehran, Iran. Her career in journalism started at the age of 20 with a position at a magazine where she formed friendships with photojournalists and documentary photographers. Envying their ability to tell stories using images, she spent every free moment enhancing her skills using this craft to capture a small piece of someone’s life and to express her vision using journalistic tools. In 2014, she completed a Masters with distinction in photojournalism and documentary photography at the London College of Communication. Most of her works are deeply rooted in her personal history and are associated with an exploration of the ways she and other people interact with, or are affected by, society. She has spent the last few years documenting her cultural background and the present problems Iranian people face.

Mojgan has received numerous awards including the Getty Images grants for editorial photography in 2015, Magnum Photos: Professional Practice in 2015, the Vice Chancellor’s Scholarship for the academic study in 2014 and Noor-Nikon master class in 2013. Her work has been exhibited in the United Kingdom and Iran.

She is currently based in Tehran, Iran, and is mentored by Jocelyn Bain Hogg.
