Photography was my first passion. Although I developed many more, it remained my constant companion and source of inspiration over the years.
I am an amateur photographer, as in "it is my hobby"… a word with an Arabic origin, which translates to "my love”.
My profession is not in the arts, I therefore don’t care that much about presentation and consistency of style. Photography offers so many paths, and I am interested in almost every one of them. So I experiment and don’t limit myself to one or the other, but I am being a bit disingenuous… I find myself shooting street more than anything else.
My fascination with street photography stems from its story telling quality… short but real stories. To me it marks the difference between an actor portraying a person that engages our interest and the person themselves. If the movie makers did a good job, you would like to meet the person behind the story… in most cases, at least (I am not keen on meeting any of the psychopaths Hannibal Lecter is based on).
DeviantArt has been my artistic home for more than a decade. I made many friends here with whom I share my passion, and am happy to be back again and again and again…
