About/Contact

Fatemeh Baigmoradi (born in 1984) is an artist born and raised in Iran. In 2008 she earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts in photography at University of Tehran.  In 2012, Baigmoradi moved to USA, and in 2017 received her Master of Arts degree in photography at University of New Mexico. The themes of loss and identity define much of the work that she has made. These themes emerge both directly and indirectly. Transitions in her life, both physical and emotional, have been critical in her work. Since 2005, she has participated in more than 20 shows in United States, Iran, England, France and China.
