A recent transplant to the Triangle area of North Carolina, I'm in this part of the country to pursue writing and art and moved from Florida to higher ground as a proactive climate migrant. TO CONTACT ME, click this email link.


Pamir Kiciman's photography appears in 86 Logic Issue 6, and his writing was selected for HOME? An Artistic Exploration of Housing in the Triangle (NC). Returning to acting in the summer of 2023 (see below), he's been a freelance writer and photographer for The Local Reporter in Chapel Hill, highlighting people, venues and events in the arts and culture sector. His feature about the Spirit in the Land exhibition at Duke University's Nasher Museum of Art appeared in INDY Week.

See his Muck Rack profile for all arts and culture features.

Pamir's photography includes recent work with creatives in the fields of dance and movement, avant music and musicians, theater, visual arts, and photojournalism.

He's also a pro teacher and practitioner of meditation and healing arts.

As a Reiki Teacher and Meditation Guide, he has conducted Reiki Trainings in South Florida at Broward Health - Imperial Point Hospital - and FAU College of Nursing; practiced Reiki and Hypnotherapy at the same hospital; and presented about Reiki at an ITP Medical Conference and giving Reiki sessions to participants. He founded Oasis Reiki Dojo which follows Usui Sensei's original, Japanese Reiki teachings.

Climate Photography

Boneyard Beach at Botany Bay, Edisto Island, South Carolina on Jan 9, 2021. A surreal, beautiful and haunting location. These tree carcasses are here because of erosion! Sad and stunning. The trees died because erosion caused the ocean to come inland and now it's a place of beauty and pain. This is climate change in action. All images ©️Pamir Kiciman

Nature Photography

These are from 8 am in the morning on 10/18/20 - a period when I spent large chunks of time on Florida barrier island beaches that are unguarded (no lifeguards). This was a wild day of photography at high tide with rain pelting down, then the sun bursting out of the clouds, one minute dark and moody, next minute dazzling and bright.

This coastline is an outcropping of the Anastasia formation, a stretch of limestone rocks known as coquinas. The outcropping is what gives the beach a dramatic look, with the waves of the Atlantic exploding over the rocks and creating numerous coves. All images ©️Pamir Kiciman
