Some of her most winning photographs employ a type of eclipse-like lighting that creates a stark outline of the figure against a void of shadow. These are grand images, often reaching over four feet.

Outside the studio, Rahgozar photographs while traveling around Iran and abroad. Once again we find the artist’s appreciation of contrast but with the addition of vivid color and pattern. Vibrant fabrics or flowers in bloom stand out against the stucco facades of buildings. Other works, displaying her versatility, explore the rich cultural treasures and architecture of Persia with her characteristic appreciation of the people who call it home.

Rahgozar has exhibited frequently since the mid-1990s, in Iran and also Turkey, England, and recently the United States. She lives and works in Tehran.
