New Project


Why the long absence? Because I have been preparing something very special. A new project that has taken me a long time to conceive and make the right choices.

It is a bit like cooking, you think you have the right ingredients but then you start thinking. Do I have too many? Shall I make it simpler? What to keep and what to let go? And every time you go shopping and see new appealing ingredients you hesitate, shall I add this one and take another one out?

And no I’m not talking about baking, not this time anyway. I’m actually talking about photos and how long it takes to choose the right ones for my upcoming photo exhibition.

As a photographer I take hundreds of pictures and then sift through to choose the best ones. But of course when you get your own exhibition there is a lot to consider. The theme, the space layout, the public you are aiming for, any restrictions you may have.

As you may have noticed, I live in Iran at the moment and it has been a wonderful journey so far. There is so much to explore but above anything else it has been great to meet Iranians from all walks of life.

Since I arrived, Iranians have shown me how kind and welcoming they can be. This made my photography focus more on the people that I have encountered during my daily life not only in Tehran where I live but also where my travels have taken me.

And so this exhibition could only be about them, the people that go about their daily lives trying to cope with more sanctions that will affect them even harder. They are resilient and they have an ability to come together when things get tough. It is not the first time after all.

There are only a few days to go and I’m nervous but excited. I want my exhibition to be a small positive element in the midst of these turbulent times.

For now, I leave you with my poster … wish me luck!
