Samadian's genius is in capturing that very instant when a scene of otherwise quotidian life tells a life story onto itself.
His enthrallingly beautiful works, replete with powerful yet subliminal musings on social issues, have squarely placed him alongside the lauded class of Contemporary masters.
Highly-regarded internationally as an art director with experience working with directors like Martin Scorsese and Abbas Kiarostami, Samadian came to the forefront of critical attention in a wave of Iranian photography that gained momentum in Iranian the arts scene in the years following the 1988 end of the Iran-Iraq war.
Samadian later became Professor of Photojournalism at the University of Tehran and is today Publisher and Editor-in-chief of the Iranian cultural magazine Tassvir (Photography). Fonte
