Nima Taradji is an Iranian-American editorial and documentary photographer based in Chicago, Illinois-USA. He quit his job as an attorney in 2015 to return to photography. As a documentary photographer, his attention is drawn to cultural, social and political aspects of our society and I photograph people and stories he finds important and to which he can commit. Nima sees his camera, “as a tool that gives me access to places and allows me to explore the world and issues that would have otherwise remained a mystery.”

For Nima, Photography is and has been a perpetual learning experience. His photos have appeared in:

Der Spiegel

L’Express Magazine

The Wall Street Journal

The Washington Post

The New York Times – Lens

Public Radio International – Global Nation


CBS Chicago

ABC News


Photo District News

Interview Magazine


Nima views “Street Photography” as a tactic and not a strategy. This will be the basis of the discussions about photography during the workshop.
