    Bayrami was born in 1961 in Nazyabad, Iran, and his interest for photography began during the Iran-Iraq war. Without former education, he worked for Iranian newspapers including Neshat, Tous, and Jame’eh taking photographs of the revolution, the war, and major domestic events. In 1996 he worked for The Times Magazine and in 1999 for Reuters News Agency in Iran. From 1999 onwards Bayrami decided to concentrate on landscapes and portraiture in order to document urban and rural society, cultural and ethnic varieties, and Iranian national heritage.
    Bayrami’s work has been exhibited at Georgetown University, Paris Museum, Oxford University and participated at the Conference on Iranian Studies in Bethesda and the Cultural Exhibition on Iran (UNESCO Foundation).
