Curator Statement - click to view/hide introduction text by Sophia Greiff

Immigration and cultural identity are still much and controversially discussed topics in German society. However Maziar found a new and impressive way to approach this subject, creating images free of moralization and judgment. His staged photographs are telling stories of individuals with a migrant background – stories that are obscure and enigmatic, that have to be deciphered by the viewer but are never obvious. By using real individuals that are re-enacting their own narrative, Maziar manages to combine topics that are relevant both to the persons concerned and to society. Subtle and unintrusive his photographs transmit an idea of the experiences, hopes and fears of a generation living between different cultures.

Sophia Greiff is an arts educator specialized in photography connected to the Hamburg Arts Museum.
