Bobby Aazami is a professional photographer who chronicles love stories for a living. His curiosity for the visual medium began as a young boy in Iran when he watched his first episode of the American television series: The Six Million Dollar Man. When he moved to the United States, Bobby explored several mediums within the arts from music production to stand-up comedy, until he found contentment through the lens of a camera.
His 3-year study at Columbia College Chicago allowed him to foster and discipline his love for cinematography and photography with a documentary aesthetic.
As a survivor of childhood traumas which include narcissism and familial sexual abuse, he is the founder of Will Not Rest, an online community dedicated to education and awareness towards the prevention of child sexual abuse.
As a writer, performer and storyteller, he is currently premiering his autobiographical one-man show to further raise awareness on childhood traumas. “The Six Million Dollar Kid” is a roller coaster comedy drama that chronicles his 35-year search for the superhero inside.
What People Are Saying
"I would absolutely recommend this show to anyone who is brave enough to sit with the emotions it will certainly stir up. It is confronting content however, Bobby's artistry ensures that audiences are held with care throughout the show."
"Rather than 'inspiration porn' - it instilled a determination in me. A determination to join the fight to protect those most vulnerable."
"The key aspect of this riveting show is that when Bobby shares his story in his darkest times, he does not intend for you to see him as the victim. Instead the powerful motif portrayed is that our collective care and attention should be focused on how to stop this from happening to others."
