LEILA FATEMI

Leila Fatemi is a Toronto-based photographer of Iranian, German, and Indian descent. Currently completing her B.F.A. in Photography at Ryerson University, Leila is influenced by her own life experience and understandings as a visual artist living between cultures. Her work results from personal reflections as well as the attempt to create a better understanding and appreciation for Islamic culture and its foundations. Through the perspective of a practicing Muslim artist, she strives to create thought-provoking work that allows viewers to look at alternative perspectives of Islamic traditions.
