"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.
Tasweeri Photography offers its gratitude to the first nations of Musquem, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations as the custodians of the land, and fully respects their traditions and culture, as they share their beautiful land with us.
