I have been taking photographs, around the world, for decades. In fact, I have been taking photograph since I could hold a camera in my hands, albeit only recently started publicising my shots, thanks to my daughter who open an account for me on deviantart.com in December 2013. Since then, I have started posting some of my old and new shots online. I quite enjoy seeing them online. I lost many photos in changing computers and harddisks. I guess, it is not too late; I can still have a good collection.
My late brother, executed by Saddam Hussein’s regime in 1989, taught me how to take photographs. Dilshad Meriwani taught me how to take photos in the rain, snow, sun and at night. I am grateful for his help. Sadly he is not around to see my collection and he lost all his when Saddam’s security men raided his home. He shot slides and they were all taken by the security men never seen again. He was also taken, not to be seen again. That is where ‘meriwani art’ come from.
I have always interested in nature and people. Recently, I have been into ‘street photography’ perhaps not in its classical sense.
To me art is all around us; we just have to recognise and discover it. Art is an image of what is around us, including nature and human behaviour, which is captured with imagination, where the object is left intact, while the art cherished for all to enjoy.
