London based Afshin Feiz was born in Tehran Iran and raised all over the world, primarily in the UK and Canada. He spent 20 years living in Paris where he studied fashion and went on to work for various big brands such as Nina Ricci and Christian Lacroix. Later he showed his eponymous brand at New York and London Fashion Weeks for a number of years dressing the elite of Hollywood and the music world such as Katie Homes, Elizabeth Hurley, Julia Stiles, Girls Aloud etc.
Feiz has been an avid photographer all along and has recently changed careers leaving the fashion world for fine arts and portrait photography under the pseudonym, AFSHINLAND which is a reference to the fantasies and feelings in his head which he expresses through his photography. Whimsical ideas and his love for animal imagery are often mixed with graphic lines and dots, simple graphics that are capable of expressing extreme emotions, and triggering reflection.
