Farah Nayeri is a culture writer based in London. She writes for The New York Times. She was previously Bloomberg's culture correspondent.

Originally from Iran, Farah spent her childhood years in Tehran, Rabat and Cairo before settling in Paris. She caught the art bug early, publishing her first review (of the Pompidou Center's Paris-Paris blockbuster) in a student newspaper.

As a young reporter for Time Magazine in Paris, she covered French society and culture, then wrote for The Wall Street Journal Europe - reviewing exhibitions of Chagall and Tom Wesselman, as well as ex-President Valery Giscard d'Estaing's first novel.

Joining Bloomberg in 1995, she was posted two years later as bureau chief to Rome - where she became a tenant (among many) of the Palazzo Doria Pamphilj, home to Velazquez's fabled Portrait of Pope Innocent X.

Since 2001, Farah has lived in London, making regular jaunts to France, Italy and Spain. Her roster of interviewees includes Morgan Freeman (interviewed on a Cannes hotel terrace), Jeff Koons (on the Serpentine Gallery roof) and Frank Gehry (behind a wall of his fish lamps).

A member of the U.K.'s Critics' Circle, Farah is a conference moderator for the New York Times and has chaired panels for the World Economic Forum. She has given talks at Sciences-Po in Paris and at the Royal Academy of Arts in London. She is a classically trained pianist, and a devotee of flamenco dance.
