I believe that every human being hides a young ‘Super Hero’ within. Through my photos, I try to give voice to that hero by revealing their feelings, thoughts, ethics, and experience. Photography does not ‘capture’ only a moment. In that very moment, photography reveals something that brings in many years of historical, political, and cultural facts.

That’s why I always try to communicate with people, interact with them, and know about their backgrounds… Photography is a form of visual communication, sometimes stronger than the verbal one.

“Dream Big and Think Positive”

these thoughts are my inspiration

Every Big dream becomes a new goal and every difficulty I face, an opportunity to learn during my personal journey.

This is Life and this is what I Love… Life.
