Faraz Pourreza-Jorshari is a freelance visual artist/documentary photographer based in London. His work focuses on the long-term human impact of political and environmental conflicts within the UK. His recent project 'To Sea Again', documents the lives of ex-fishermen in Grimsby in the backdrop of the current turmoil of Brexit. This project aims to raise social awareness and shed light on the factors that manifested themselves in Brexit, whilst looking closely at the loss of the towns identity through the intimate lives of these extraordinary ex-fishermen whose livelihood was lost by the fishing decline. His other interests lie in street photography, portraiture and landscape photography.

He has recently completed his Masters in Photojournalism & Documentary Photography at UAL London and been part of both solo and group photography exhibitions in London.
