Pezhman was born in 1976 in Shiraz - the center of Iran’s cultural civilization. He and his family were forced to leave just three years later, as the country became consumed by revolution. Since his adolescence in the United States, Pezhman has been exploring both natural and urban environments through photography. A passionate naturalist, he thrives outdoors, trekking, kayaking, mountain climbing and fishing - activities through which he finds peace and introspection. He is, however, equally enthralled by the city, noticing a unique history and character behind every architectural detail of the urban streets. Pezhman continues to pursue professional photography in Atlanta. His work is continually displayed and collected throughout the United States and Canada.
