Born 1996 in Tehran, Shirin migrated to Germany at the age of seven. Since then, she has lived a parallel existence between two cultures. Her interest in Photojournalism grew during her early teenage years and got more visible after she took her first class in photography in 2011. In 2016 she moved to Tehran for a year to understand her country of origin. Back in Europe, she continues learning and exploring. She is mostly interested in topics around women's issues, identity and everyday heroes and their battles.
