Often communicating by absence rather than presence, Shohreh Mehran’s images capture and distill contemporary Iranian scenes and people, particularly in the urban and social context of Tehran.

She has exhibited widely in Iran and her work has also been shown in group shows in Europe and the US including the Etemad Gallery at Slick, Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2010); IRAN TODAY, Brigitte Schenk Gallery, Koln (2010) and the United Nations in New York (2000).

This person was part of Sharjah Biennial 10
