Born in Tehran, Shahbazi studied photography at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Dortmund, Germany (1995–1997), before attending the Zurich University of the Arts, Switzerland (1997–2000). Her successful sequence Goftare Nik/Good Words of colour photographs taken in Iran (published as a book in 2001) unexpectedly led to the Citibank Photography Prize in 2002. In 2002, she presented a series of images of Switzerland titled The Garden. At the Venice Biennale in 2003, she presented The Annunciation, an enormous installation with murals by Iranian painters based on her photographs and a ceiling of lilies.

Presented as an installation, her Meanwhile series (2007), combines everyday images of landscapes, portraits and still lifes from her world travels, one of her images expanded to poster size by an Iranian billboard artist. Other photographs are reproduced as paintings or even carpets. The exhibition Then Again (2012) at the Fotomuseum Winterthur presents 18 large-format works demonstrating how a photograph can be transformed from a depiction of reality into a geometric abstraction.
