Khosro Vahabi was born in Gilan- Northern Iran in 1982. While completing his Masters in TEFL at the University of Tehran in 2010, he discovered the work of the eminent Iranian photographer Karim Malak Madani. Inspired, he started to learn photography and completed a comprehensive course in analog and digital photography under Malak Madani’s supervision. Art has become an indispensable part of his life since then. Currently he lives and works in Istanbul.
Since 2017, his focus has been trees in forests, especially the ones in the Belgrade Forest.
Capturing significance through the seemingly insignificant, and the beauty in ‘ordinary’ natural entities typically neglected or taken for granted, is the main theme of his work.
