About

Amin Yousefi (Abadan, 1996) lives and works in Tehran. He holds a BA in Photography from the Art University of Isfahan. He has participated in several international group exhibitions and national awards and prizes. In 2019 he was selected as an Ag Galerie Talent for his work titled, “Life, Death and other Similar Things” which was exhibited in a solo show at Ag Galerie. A native of Abadan in the province of Khuzestan, Iran’s most oil-rich region and the scene for Iran’s bloody war with neighboring Iraq, Yousefi’s work deals with themes related to the cityscape, environment, humanity and effects of war and how the act of photography can conceptually mirror the structures of these relationships.
