Naveed Nour was born in Germany to Iranian parents in 1963. He is a contemporary artist who uses photography as the basis of his work. He currently resides in Boston, Massachusetts, USA. In the early 1980s Nour documented the Iran-Iraq war while focusing on the social effects of war on society. His work of this period became the core of his "History Recalls" project.[1] While most of his work is based on traditional street photography until 2006 as seen in his Momento series, which was mostly in black and white, he later changed to color photography and started to focus on conceptual themes such as in his Movements in Adagio series. His latest work is called 12 Panels of Life in Gozo and evolves around the seemingly culture of conflict in Victoria, the capital of Gozo in Malta. This project, which is a collaboration between Nour and Norbert Francis Attard has been juried by Transcultural Exchange, to be shown in April 2009 as part of a simultaneous global exhibit, titled Here, There and Everywhere: Anticipating the Art of the Future. The purpose of the proposed project is to encourage artists to work with others in different parts of the world to create collaborative artworks. The aim is to explore, foster and document the resulting cross-fertilization, multi-disciplinary, "out-of-the-box" thinking in order to encourage more of the same in both artistic and non-artistic disciplines.
