News and Events

Just published: EYEWITNESSED

“Eyewitnessed” describes the adventurous and bold life of Iranian-French photojournalist Manoocher Deghati against the backdrop of the past fifty years of world history: extraordinary experiences, remarkable encounters, incredible coincidences, and numerous anecdotes, some of which are more fantastic than any fictional story could be. At the same time, they illustrate the nature of oppression, the pursuit of freedom and an indestructible zest for life.

The biographical novel is available in EnglishGerman and Italian.


In these difficult times, with many of us being restricted to stay indoors, in order to use our time in a constructive way, I have decided to start a series of videos. In the coming weeks I’m going to talk about the stories behind some of my photographs.
