Farhad Berahman is an Iranian photographer living in the UK since 2013.
"My work is mainly about memory and displacement and I get inspiration from people that I meet on every daily life. My work resonates my being in this very moment, a reflection of what is happening around me and my journey through life and things that I live or struggle with, things from my past and present."
Stamps to Elsewhere (Part of Journeys Festival International, Leicester, 2018)
"In 2018 I was commissioned by ArtReach and Leicester Print Workshop for Journeys Festival International Leicester. Project was funded directly by the Art Council England to create artwork for their Look Up project. LOOK UP is a large scale outdoor visual arts exhibition that takes over the city with high-impact visual artworks. For LOOK UP I created a collection of large-scale postage stamps for a fictional country that symbolised a home for migrants. The stamps were exhibited in 10 window spaces throughout Leicester City Centre. The work explores the theme of displacement and resettlement of communities. Stamps were exhibited through the city of Leicester in different locations including : BBC Radio Leicester, The Highcross Beacon, Visit Leicester, Phoenix Cinema and Art Centre, Leicester Print Workshop, Curve theatre, LCB Depot, and Attenborough Arts Centre."
