»Kabul-born, Berlin-based photographer and director Mehran Djojan is a dynamic creative force making waves in the world of photography and filmmaking. With a passion for storytelling through visuals, Mehran’s work transports viewers into the realm of his vivid imagination.

His unique approach to photography and filmmaking sets him apart as an artist who effortlessly merges the ethereal with the tangible.

Renowned for directing innovative documentary movies that have received international acclaim, Mehran brings his visionary storytelling skills to every project. Through his lens, he captures the essence of his subjects within the natural world, creating scenes that are both compelling and emotionally resonant. What distinguishes Mehran’s work is his commitment to authenticity; his images are not overtly manipulated or contrived, but instead, they draw emotion from the genuine expressions and interactions of his subjects within their environment.

In Djojan’s world, a single piercing gaze or an elusive daydream are all it takes to create fantastic photos and cinematic moments. His work transcends the ordinary and invites viewers to join him on a journey into the extraordinary.

As the Afghani artist continues to explore new horizons in photography and filmmaking, his ability to captivate audiences with his dreamlike visions remains at the forefront of his artistic pursuits. With each project, he pushes the boundaries of creativity and narrative, solidifying his place as a visionary in the field.

Djojan’s work weaves together fashion, identity, and politics, unveiling the beauty and wonder of our own imagination.«
