About Soraya Zaman
Soraya Zaman is an Australian fashion photographer currently living in New York City. After graduating the University of Technology, Sydney with an economics degree, Soraya embarked on a year long journey taking her across the globe from Hong Kong to Cairo, entirely overland, with only a camera as company. This journey ignited a passion for image making and when returned, Soraya took on further studies at the Australian Centre for Photography, graduating from a number of Master Classes.
From 2007-09, Soraya assisted Derek Henderson, Beau Grealy and Pierre Toussaint, three of Australia’s premier fashion photographers, further refined the craft. In 2010, Soraya launched their own photography career which lead to a relocation to New York in 2013 where they now reside.
Soraya's photography is raw and emotive, effortlessly capturing moments. Famed for their versatility as a photographer, spanning fashion, documentary reportage and still life/environmental image making, Soraya's personal work explores notions of sexuality and gender. Current projects include "American Boys" a documentation of the USA's trans-masculine community from all across the country, expanding the notions of binary gender rolls.
