Artist Statement

"Photography, as a powerful medium of expression and communications, offers an infinite variety of perception, interpretation and execution."  - Ansel Adams

 

I restarted my artistic journey in photography as a form of Sufi meditation and a celebration 
of our similarities and differences as a human race, as well as those in the physical world 
around us and what they mean. Chaos and harmony work side by side in a tango of diversity 
and subtle uniformity. To me photography is a way to transcend from mundane existence 
to spiritual richness.

I am an advocate of the principle concept that photography, in its deepest artistic form, 
is a three point bridge between the artist, the subject and the eye of the beholder. For my 
art work to be effective, I try to invoke the feelings of the observer based in her or his own 
life journey. This can be seen in the difference subjects of my art work. Whether it is a 
gentle stream, a crushing wave, a landscape, the lines of a human body, trees as ancient a
s life itself, the minute details of the smallest creatures or as big as distant stars, or our 
cosmopolitan human surrounding, I try to find what connects to the viewer and build on it. 
Nothing is more enjoying to me than hearing the diverse feelings and interpretations of 
my art work viewers, based on their experiences. In this, I am a true believer of the words 
of Ansel Adams above.
