My photography is a document of moments in the daily life of people spanning the last 10 years. Due to development, environmental degradation, and advances in technology the world is changing rapidly. That is why I went to backstreets, and met people to photograph disappearing things. Their life is poor and difficult compared to ours but they could greet strangers with a real smile of composure.
I also try to take photographs of different cultures and try to show how they live in an artistic way. When I take pictures, I am as a painter. So I think about compositions, colors and stories. Colors are made to feel more warm. I to capture the colors from people’s normal lives in their natural setting. So I go to take pictures, mostly in backstreet and markets, where people are living and their stories take place. I hope you can enjoy my photography and feel warm with nostalgia.
