He studied graphic design at IRIB Art School and Italian Literature at Azad University in Tehran and he is an MFA candidate at University of Pennsylvania. Mirzaei’s photos are usually with a huge graphical approach and wise usage of negative space which have been usually considered as minimalist.
In 2006, he did a photo series called Humans, which have been exhibited in 4 solo shows in Iran, Turkey, UAE and Russia as well as in some group exhibitions in Australia and Italy. Michael Kenna has acclaimed this photo series by an essay : Mr. Mirzaei, with reserved sensibility, kindly provides us with an opportunity to quietly reflect and consider the reasons for our existence. It is a worthy subject to ponder, and this is a worthy group of photographs. Mirzaei’s photographs have been also credited by his compatriot photographer Mitra Tabrizian, who admired the surreal quality and the sense of isolation in his works.
In 2008, his photo series Rewind won the first prize of the 3rd photo feast of Tehran’s University of Art.
Mirzaei has translated "La Grammatica di Dio", short stories by Stefano Benni from Italian to Persian. His book What I don't have, which contains a long story and a photo series is published in Italy by Edizioni del Bradipo in 2013.
