Photos keep the past alive
Projects > Photos keep the past alive
One thing I am continuously drawn back to is the history of my family. I realized this tends to form the basis of my artwork, sparked by my obsession with flicking through old family photographs. I'm fascinated by the way they lived and coming from a mixed background, I can explore cultures from the Middle East and Asia. These old family photos are beautiful on their own and keep the past alive.
