Aida Chehrehgosha (1980-) Sweden

Aida Chehrehgosha is a Swedish photographer who has studied at University College of Arts, Crafts & Design and the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm. In 2009 Chehrehgosha’s exhibition “To Mom, Dad and My Two Brothers,” which was her degree project for University College of Arts, Crafts & Design, was on display. The exhibition showed Chehrehgosha’s parents and symbolized closure with her family and violent childhood in Iran. She later featured her family in additional works, as when she had her parents photographed as dead and dressed in various animal heads.

Chehrehgosha is currently a freelance photographer, but she has also worked for various newspapers, as well as in film and theater. Chehrehgosha has been cited as an innovator in photography, along with other photographers such as Helena Blomqvist and Johan Willner. In her photographs, she has abandoned traditional photography in favor of new technologies in an effort to produce new themes and narratives.
