... thinking of rain forests and a city in the clouds
Photography records the gamut of feelings written on the human face, the beauty of the earth and skies that man has inherited, and the wealth and confusion man has created. It is a major force in explaining man to man.
A lifetime spend inspired by stories in world literature, impressionist paintings, cinematic light in films, music layered with lyrics and philosophy from diversified lands, My medium of choice specifically employed to convey a ruminative worldview is a camera and photography ~ fm
Nur.e.Alam Zahe Naseeb
This is more than just a book of inspirational quotes, it is a profuse collection of words that inspired me to do more than make a compilation of visual fragments, more than just a simple document of reality.
Translation of the book project title … “Light of all the worlds, grateful for my destiny”
Discerning while detecting a sincere requisite, to ignite several senses beyond simply seeking beauty but rather striving for deeper interpretations, in a world so full, to see beyond a thin layered surface of quick gratifications, to go further and seek the unseen counsel in its esoteric eloquence waiting to be deciphered.
“The true lover is never free from striving,
they revolve restlessly and ceaselessly around the light of God.
And God consumes them, making them nothing,
destroying the veil of their reason.”
― Hazrat Jalaluddin Rumi r.a
“You become things, you become an atmosphere, and if you become it, which means you incorporate it within you, you can also give it back. You can put this feeling into a picture. A painter can do it. And a musician can do it and I think a photographer can do that too and that I would call the dreaming with open eyes.”
Magnolias in Love
“If you remember me, as you recall the smell of magnolias, then I don't care if everyone else forgets.” ~fm
My Secret Gardens
A circular path and the pleasurable walk
In my mind's eye, distant moments linger
It's my secret garden silent & serene
Draped in robes of green you appear
The gathering of lights is memorable
Painted moments perfect and temporal
