Rebecca Shirin Jafari (1986) is a Norwegian/Iranian artist, working and living in Oslo.
Based in her own experiences and background, Jafaris work focuses on belonging and identity.
Through personal narratives, she often explores the duality of growing up in two different worlds.
Jafari is also deeply engaged in immigration related topics, a theme that she keeps coming back to,
both in her projects as well as in her teaching. She holds a craft certificate in photography
and a BA in Journalism and Media.
From 2015-2017 Jafari was selected for the Norwegian Journal of Photography, a program supporting
ten independent photographers in Norway.
Her work from this program is now exhibited at Henie Onstad Kunstsenter until January 2020.
