Dubai based artist Nairy Shahinian was born in Damascus, Syria, in 1984. After spending some time with her late father Vahe - a well-established photographer in Syria - in his studio, she developed her knowledge of photography. In 2008, Shahinian earned a Professional Photography Diploma from the New York Institute of Photography. Her experimental technique in photography allows her to document her surroundings and her experiences, therefore exploring and discovering her settings.
