Photography is a moment of divine creation in present time – a moment which would otherwise be lost in the eternal passage of time. The photographer captures the everlasting nature of life as a celestial creator in present time.
My creativity and perspective is different than most due to the rare sufferings and pains that I've had to endure as a person born with Treacher Collins syndrome (TCS) in Iran. My severe facial abnormality has hid my true face and my photography is an expression of this unseen face. The external wounds inflicted upon my soul from early childhood is often seen in my photography.
Pictures such as the burning cigarette and the faceless mirror are symbolic to the emotions that I've experienced in my life. My wounds are patched through photography and my soul finds ease through creativity. The common theme seen in most pictures of mine are that of isolation and appearance versus reality. The hands which hide my face are the same hands which push the shutter button and give hope to the unending turmoil of a person born with TCS in Iran.
