Showcase: Rosaline Shahnavaz

Rosaline Shahnavaz was awarded the Photoworks Prize at this year's London College of Communication Photography Degree Show for her project Far Near Distance.

Sahar’s circumstances have confined her freedom to the walls of her home in Northern Tehran. She has never seen beyond the Alborz Mountains, which poignantly remain in constant view of her bedroom window. In Far Near Distance, Shahnavaz has combined portraits of Sahar with Iranian landscapes that echo her situation.

With unique access to Sahar’s private life in Iran and the freedom of publishing work in the UK, Shahnavaz was able to candidly photograph her at her home, with an intimacy that is simply unrepresentable in Iran.

Rosaline Shahnavaz is a London-based photographer, she holds a BA in Photography from LCC and a foundation from Central St Martins. Further work by Shahnavaz can be found on her website.
