“In the work of art the truth of an entity has set itself to work. ‘To set’ means here: to bring to a stand. Some particular entity, a pair of peasant shoes, comes in the work to stand in the light of its being. The being of the being comes into the steadiness of its shining. The nature of art would then be this: the truth of being setting itself to work.” -Martin Heidegger

Kurdish photographer from Kurdistan, Iraq.

Photography is something that came to me in 2011 when I purchased my first professional quality camera. although I would in no way call myself a professional since I'm still learning as I go.

I pay a great attention to detail to sculpt together deeply poetic and melancholic photos. The vital themes that bring my work to life are subtle yet always evident. Desolation, isolation, solitude and sadness are all part of my work, and the single greatest force behind my work is my own personal life experience.

My work is something that is very much inspired by the pain of human existence. I try to bring out the isolation and suffering that I have experienced in my own life to create something that is haunting and full of depth, something that will linger on the viewers tongue with a familiar taste. I want what I create to be a window, to offer a slightly different perspective on the sorrows that life gives. The only way to come to terms with the darkness in life is to accept it and find something beautiful in it; that's what I do, I find beauty in my pain, and every pain is a chance for me to create.

Most of all this work is a way for me to ease a burden that I carry on my own shoulders. Exposing that pain and loneliness in my life is a type of freedom for me.

I might take photos, but my true passion is in conveying raw human emotion with a softness that intensifies the beauty of a heartrending message.

Thanks for the favourite :aww:
Your gallery is amazing. Every and each one of your photos have as much power as a thousand words. So much pain and so much sadness on one account... For some reason it reminds me of the lyrics of a song. "So much pain and sorrow that it actually feels good" .

Your gallery is so amazing to me! I love the darkness and isolation you portray so well in your shots. It's so mysterious and kind of sad and the beautiful poems that you write with them really finishes each photograph.

I'm really happy i found your work,. definitely gonna watch you! a true inspiration my friend!

And i also love that you're Kurdish just like me :)
