Kamelia Pezeshki

b. 1963 Iranian-Canadian

Kamelia Pezeshki was born in Urmia, Iran in 1963. As a young girl she moved to the United States in 1979 with her family. Similar to other immigrants who keep moving in search of yet another home, she moved a few times before settling in Salt Lake City, Utah. There she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Utah with emphasis in Photography. Her photographs are included in the Utah Museum of Fine Arts permanent collection. After artistic accomplishments in Utah, she made another life changing decision. This time she moved to Toronto, Canada in 1996 where she resides and continues to use film cameras and alternative processes to make photographs.
