About The Event

Claremont Forum's May Artist Photographer: Ghawam Kouchaki

About Ghawam Kouchaki: Born in 1991, Ghawam is a filmmaker and photographer based in Los Angeles. From a young age, he was captivated by storytelling, utilizing various mediums from writing short stories inspired by his dreams to filmmaking and capturing life through his parent's Minolta X-700. After creating his first short film in high school, his passion for cinema deepened, leading him to pursue a path influenced by admired filmmakers like Edward Yang, Krzysztof Kieślowski, Michael Mann, and Toshiaki Toyoda. Ghawam is currently working on his first photo book, "The Last Summer," which is based on his travels in Iran.
