Kamal was born in Shiraz, Iran in 1964. In 1998 he moved to Canada. During his youth, which was marked by revolution, he fell in love with photography. He discovered his interest for documentary photography during the Iran-Iraq war, which resulted in him being drafted into the army. After the war, under the mentorship of Chehrenegar, a renowned Iranian photographer, his interest in photography grew leading him to pursue it professionally.


In 2003, Kamal moved to Montreal, where he not only had an opportunity to learn French but to also dedicate himself to the visual arts, primarily in long-term documentary photography and filmmaking.

His intimate long-term documentary work with Stanley Lewis, a renowned Quebecois sculptor, garnered Kamal recognition from the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, where he was exhibited in 2006. In 2007 he was also invited by Galerie Espace Arts de Feu to do an exhibition on his work.


Kamal's works have been published in a variety of Iranian, North American, and European books, magazines, and newspapers. His work has also been displayed internationally in individual and collective exhibitions and can be found in several public and private collections. In his most recent exhibition, in the Museum of Masters and Artisans of Quebec, he had an opportunity to show his long-term documentary photography comparing the life of the Indigenous people in Canada to the Nomads of Iran. This long-term documentary has inspired him to pursue work on a variety of new exhibitions.


Since the beginning of the pandemic, he has started work on many different projects regarding Covid-19, including projects titled My Ghost Town, Seeking Solace in the 21st Century, and The INDETERMINATE ENCOUNTERS.
