Artist Statement

 

As an artist, I work hard to develop pictures that speak both to me and to others about the beauty that exists in different cultures.

 

I've always imagined a photograph to be like a jigsaw puzzle, you have to find the countless pieces that fit together to create something visually spellbinding.

 

Before I come to take any picture, I visualize that photograph in my mind. I start asking myself questions what should this image include and what specific features would captivate and astonish my audience? In order to do this, before capturing any photo I research and investigate the location that the picture should be taken in and the angle that would best represent that image. This in return helps me obtain creative and unique pictures that have never been seen before.

 

Capturing the different places in Abu Dhabi and Dubai gave me a different insight of how photographs should be taken.

 

I do not merely want to capture the image just with my lenses, I want to give mysnapshots life once again. Snap!A moment is captured, forever still, saved for generations to see; whether it portrays a strong visual message, or simply an abstract composition.

 

Whatever it is, photography can still be understood universally, I think this underlines the concept that a picture can speak a thousand words, to a thousand different people. I find this idea of global understanding deeply fascinating, and it is one reason among many which has propelled me towards the study and creation of photography.

 

My devotion and attachment to photography always pushes me to expand and enhance my techniques in various areas, and not just that, but it also motivates me to keep learning something new each and every single day.
