Yasmin Zadeh : Photography & Education

An urban wanderer by nature; my photographic practice documents city spaces, social housing, high rise 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, along with a sculptural use of light and tone. 

I trained as a Graphic Designer at Camberwell College of Arts, before going on to work for The Barbican and United Visual Artists. 

I now lead a successful photography department at a diverse school in South East London, teaching children aged 13-18 photography. I have worked in arts education for a decade and feel strongly that photography can be used to inspire young people from deprived inner-city communities to explore the world in creative and personal ways. 

I am currently studying for my Masters in Photography and Urban Cultures at Goldsmiths, combining sociology principles with my photographic practice.

Collaborations have included Tate Modern, The Photographers Gallery, Goldsmiths, University of East London, Ravensbourne  and University of the Arts London.
