LYNN JOHNSON -- PHOTOJOURNALIST

Kiana Hayeri 

Kiana (b.1988) grew up in Tehran, Iran and migrated to Toronto while she was still a teenager. Faced with the challenges of adapting to a new environment, she took up photography as a way of bridging the gap in language and culture. After an incident in her personal life, while still in university, she packed her life in a backpack and started a nomad life in search of a place that could be called home. She has worked internationally but remained focus on stories that awaken her curiosity and illuminates her background. Her self-initiated and self-funded projects often explore complex topics such as migration, adolescence and sexuality. Kiana is a TED fellow, currently based in between Kabul and Tehran, covering the region.
