Roya Heydari: the photographer

V

I was born on July 06, 1992 in Balkh, Afghanistan and I have more than ten years of experience in different art scenes. I started my artistic journey in Radio Television Afghanistan and later in Arzo TV. My love for theater pushed me to explore and strengthen the non-existing theatre industry in Afghanistan. My artistic journey continued in Moby Group, where I worked as a presenter and script writer and eventually directing a short film “Season’s Reverse”. The film functioned as a launching pad into the national and international media for me as I won many awards in different festivals. Since the past eight 8 years I have focused solely on photography and have found the best of myself in this art. My works have been showcased in many exhibitions and art shows. Currently, I work as a consultant with different national and international organizations such as GIZ and USIP.
