For me, an image of a community is an important part of how we identify, share, and remember traditions and trends through generations. An image in a photograph tells a story through captured moments, giving life to days gone by and shaping how we perceive history. Explore our photographic past and experience how it’s influenced our present. Mozhdeh's work has been exhibited in many galleries and participated many fair international such as: Genova, Kula Lumpur, Malaysia, Art expo in Malacca, Malaysia, Sherveh's festival in Tehran, Iran, Auction in Middle East Art Gallery, Tehran, Iran
