About Milad Karamooz

He is a self-taught photographer who's born and living in Tehran. Growing up as minority in a society which is deeply influenced by religion, tradition, patriarchy and violence has had a huge impact on his actions and social views. His work is a sort of manifestation for that. Throughout his works, he has always tried to challenge and criticize those social issues. The art is a tool for him to demonstrate and illustrate the pressure and pain which society had caused him.
