The Iranian photographer and artist Berahman is based in the UK. He has specialised in social documentary and editorial photography in Asia and the Middle East. In 2007 he began working with Associated Press in the UAE and Middle East. He was nominated in 2009 for a World Press Photo award for the best young talented photographer in the MENA region. His work has been published by the BBC; AP; The New York Times; Guardian; Washington Post; Figaro and a range of other leading news agencies. He won a scholarship to study for an MA in photojournalism and documentary photography at the University of the Arts London in 2013.

He is currently the recipient of an Arts Council of England Grant for Arts award to support his current project and work. His work has been in numerous exhibitions including shows at Four Corners Gallery in London 2013; SU Gallery (University of Arts) 2013; his series Uncertain was selected to be exhibited as part Exposure during the Format International Festival in 2015 and his work was also shown at Tate Britain in a digital sharing event and exhibition in 2015.
