Photojournalist

My name is Davood Mousavi. I left Iran in 2006 because my life as an activist, journalist and photographer, had become impossible. I lived in India for 5 years until I moved to Sweden. Living in an open society has given me an opportunity to value the freedom of speech as I can express myself, my ideas and opinions without the fear of persecution. All this has made me more determined to actively promote the human rights not only in Iran but everywhere in the world. My inspiration is my mother. She lost her father when she was small girl and never had a chance for education. Yet when she was 42-years old and had six children, she decided to return to school to learn to read and write. For me this was an act of inspiration. As human being we should never lose hope.
