Yasmin Zadeh : Photography / Education
An urban wanderer by nature; my photographic practice documents city spaces, social housing, brutalist architecture and derelict urban environments that so dominate contemporary landscapes today. Time, duration and transition within urban spaces are themes strongly present in my work.
I trained as a Graphic Designer at Camberwell College of Arts, before going on to work for The Barbican and United Visual Artists.
I have worked in arts education for the past 10 years; running a photography department at a school in South East London, delivering a highly successful self-designed curriculum to GCSE and A-Level photography students. I have also collaborated on educational projects for arts institutions including The Barbican, National Maritime Museum, University of East London and Ravensbourne. I feel strongly that photography can be used to inspire young people from inner-city communities to explore the world in creative and personal ways.
I am currently completing an MA in Photography and Urban Cultures at Goldsmiths; combining urban sociology theories with my photographic practice.
