"My photographs are not generally planned in advance, and I do not anticipate that the onlooker will share my viewpoint. However, I feel that if my photograph leaves an image on the viewer’s mind, something has been accomplished. I see what eye see."
Born in Paris and raised in Tehran and Boston, with a little over 2 years pause while in Lisbon, Armineh is a mobile photographer now based in Los Angeles who has been capturing moments since 2009. She has had no professional training, however, her vision has been the driving force behind her creations. Although Armineh would describe herself as a hobby photographer, her resume tells otherwise. Her photographic work has received notable awards and mentions by prevalent institutions and organizations and she most recently exhibited at Anzoh Gallery, MK2 Cinema, Paris, France, and Fathom Gallery.
