About Zoya Tavakoli

Zoya Tavakkoli was born in 1981 in Mashhad. Due to her early enthusiasm in painting, her family encouraged her to spend more time on art. When she was a secondary school student, she learned professional photography with a Russian Zenith camera. She entered the college of Art and Architecture (Islamic Azad University, Central Tehran Branch) in 2000 to do her BA. As she was studying photography, she began to learn Photoshop. Photography and Photoshop both took her life much farther than she expected. Her BA thesis concerned surreal computerized-effect photographs combination which were all combined and montaged through Photoshop. Most of the photomontages on the website belong to her BA thesis and her individual exhibition held in May 2008 in Atbin Art Gallery of Tehran. Now she works as the manager, graphic and photography designer in portrait, commercial, artistic, décor design, photo location and art expert in Zoya Photo Studio.
