Yasmin Zadeh : Photography & Education

An urban wanderer by nature; my photographic practice explores city spaces, documenting social housing and high rise architecture that so dominates contemporary landscapes today. I am drawn to derelict urban spaces, with the aim of creating visually arresting images that seek out light in dark places. 

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 highly successful photography department at a 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 innovative and creative ways. 

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