Born 1996 in Tehran, Shirin migrated to Germany at the age of seven. Since then, she has lived a parallel existence between two cultures. Her interest in Photojournalism grew during her early teenage years, so she started her education at HS Hannover in 2014. In 2016 she moved to Tehran for a year to understand her country of origin. Back in Europe, she continues learning and exploring. She did an internship at the newspaper „Weser Kurier“ in Bremen, Germany, in 2018 and studied at the Photo 1 Program at DMJX in Aarhus, Denmark. She got shortlisted for the Alexia Foundation Student Grant in 2019 with her story „May I have this dance“. She is mostly interested in topics around women's issues, identity and everyday heroes and their battles.
