street photography article on 15x100 site

My dear friend Michael Vandertol asked me to write something on my street stuff. I was flattered and enlightened. I think it was a great introduction to the 15x100 group and to the few who read it.

i'm publishing books

the process

i have been asked to write a short essay of sorts about my street stuff. at first i was a bit taken back because i don't really consider myself a street photographer.
interestingly enough i realized i was in denial. somehow in the back of my mind being a street photographer has some stigma attached to it, along with expectations to make bold social statements, raw and full of impact, but maybe they're my own.
my images are more subtle without a social statement, more of a psychological one. this exercise was eye opening, i really never put into words how my process evolves.
thanks to michael vandertol for pulling it out of me .

winter of change

"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek."

File Magazine

for what its worth, File Magazine has finally chosen one of my images for publication to their website and, added me to their contributor list. not sure what it means but it made me happy being i have been feeling sort of angsty about my work lately.
i am forever grateful for my 2 beautiful muses kadri and nora. because of them i found out something deep about myself.
