Episode 06 / Kazem Hakimi
Is it possible to combine running a fish and chip shop with being an internationally acclaimed photographer? It is if you’re Kazem Hakimi. In this conversation recorded at his home in Oxford, the charming and disarmingly modest Kazem, who came to the UK from Iran over 30 years ago, explains how he photographs for love. For the love of the medium of photography itself, and for the love of people.
Despite having shown at a number of galleries, including the Museum of Modern Art in Oxford, Kazem doesn’t have a website. A quick Google will turn up some of his projects but I’ve also put together a gallery of images from hi project OX4 below.
