Empowering Self-Portraits: The Artistic Journey of Baharak Khaleghi


Baharak Khaleghi is an Iranian multimedia artist based in the United States, who employs self-portraiture as a medium to foster dialogue about women’s issues. Her art is both a personal reflection on her own experiences and an exploration of the challenges encountered by other women.
