I derive my work tools from life, people, nature, place and time.
As long as I work near all these tools, I create content for people to see.
I work in the field of journalism and visual media, where drama events are recorded on television, I found that the true stories of immigrants from their communities are among the most important details of life that are told to people, that is to the sincerity of feelings and emotions because they stem from the heart and they may be indelible from the memory and narrating it from the photographs may be unfamiliar. But I have practiced these works and participated in specialized courses to create the content of the photo story. In this work, I share the sufferings and joys of people by keeping their memories active and their integration into different societies.
The art of photography has a special style and mood to produce the narrative image, and it is possible for each person to see it with a different vision, but the focus remains on the human in all the details of his life is the closest to my style specialized in personal portraiture.
I did not use the fictional method in telling the story, but I find myself close to the realistic school in the art of photography, where all a real thing is without frills, and it is possible that many societies in the world miss it, perhaps as a way of attention !!!
This kind of human memory story has its roots.
