Cyrus Mahboubian

Cyrus Mahboubian (b. 1986, London, UK) is a British-Iranian artist known for his contemplative approach to photography and continued use of analogue materials, especially polaroid. He has stated that his intentionally slow process is a response to the increasing influence of technology in our lives.

Mahboubian's work has been exhibited in solo and group shows internationally since 2010. Notable exhibitions include Fotografia Europea festival, Italy, and Pitt Rivers Museum, Oxford. His first photobook 'VISCERA' was published in 2019, with book launches at Sotheby's and London Art Book Fair at Whitechapel Gallery. He has led workshops at Tate Britain and The Photographers' Gallery.

Mahboubian’s work is in the permanent collection of Soho House, as well as numerous private collections worldwide, and has been featured by Photomonitor; Culture Trip; Global Citizen; The Guardian; BBC; Tatler; and LA Weekly. His studio is based in Trafalgar Square, London.
