Ebrahim Alipoor

VII Mentor Program 2023-24

Ebrahim Alipoor, a Kurdish freelance photographer and storyteller from Iran, has spent a decade capturing images to create visual narratives. He opted for photography as his primary artistic pursuit, recognizing its profound ability to engage souls in third-world nations, where influence is not easily achieved. In this challenging context, he has constantly sought avenues to connect with people despite formidable circumstances, governmental restrictions, and artistic awareness deficits.

His photographic work revolves around crises within his immediate surroundings, addressing issues like refugees, war, and ancient cultural and societal dilemmas, ranging from Middle Eastern faiths and traditions to Kurdish conflicts.
