Fery Malek-Madani

Photographer, Filmmaker

Photographer and filmmaker Fery Malek-Madani was born in Tehran in 1955, was sent to school in Belgium as a girl, and enjoyed the same dreams and desires and distractions her European schoolmates did, plotting their adulthood with the world at the feet, driven by the same things teen girls have always been: balancing a need to save the world with making art with falling in love.
Malek-Madani stayed in Belgium, and has lived there since she was 11 years old.
