Mehdi Khandan (b. 1980, Tehran, Iran) started photography in 2002 by partaking in Mehrdad Afsari’s courses. His works are characterized by remaining true to analog photography and the use of alternative processes, multiple exposure, and simple cameras, which are all rooted in his unique approach to man’s relationship with the world and himself. His photographs are marked by a sense of inwardness as he explores his inner realm. To him, photography is a representation of the curious mind of the artist in relation to his surroundings, and a reference to his recollections and lived experience. He lives and works in Tehran.
