Throughout 2024, the University of Westminster and The Photographers’ Gallery will collaborate to invite various artists and photographers who create or write about photography to challenge visual representation within socially oriented practices and to explore the impact of their work within broader discourses.

Our next Photography Forum event will be with Amin Yousefi (b.1996) who holds an MA in Photography from the University of Westminster (2021). He is a native of Abadan in the province of Khuzestan, Iran’s most oil-rich region, and the scene of bloody war with neighbouring Iraq. Yousefi’s work examines the event of photography, the violence against protests in the Middle East, and how the act of photography can conceptually mirror the structures of these relationships. His work and writing have been featured in Aperture, Der Greif, and Foam Magazine. His recent project, “Eyes Dazzle as They Search for the Truth,” was selected as a finalist of the Carte Blanche Awards at Paris Photo in 2022. He has participated in several group exhibitions and prizes including recently being named a winner of the 2024 Foam Talent Award. Yousefi has an upcoming display in April 2024 with Circulation(s), at the Centquatre-Paris in France. 

Amin will be joined by curator and writer David Campany.
