Mehrva Arvin

Iranian Photographer
Mehrva Arvin was born in 1956, in Tehran, Iran.
Member of “Caroun Photo Club” (CPC)
Member of The Canadian Association for Photographic Art (CAPA)

She has been around photography and films since early childhood. Her uncle used to make 8mm films of the family growing up and old. Her father bought her a camera and Mehrva started to take photos of her interests. Growing up in a country full of architectural and historical monuments, that became a focus for her.

She left for the United States to continue her studies in 1975, and ended up in Berkeley, 
California, where she lived till 1992.

Mehrva 's sole training has been two courses in photography. She started exhibiting in 1985 and then there was a gap of 10 years, while she was trying to find out what is it she would like to do when she grew up!

Well, with lots of changes in her life and her eventual departure from the States and a trip around the world in 1992, she came back home after 18 years abroad. This was a new chapter in her photographic art and has not left her yet!
