My Photo scholarship 2010 entry

Bahrain | Sunday, 17 October 2010 | 5 photos


I’ve always been fascinated by cultures and thought that they were the essence of art. Perceiving the colourful habits, customs, emotions and beliefs, and reflecting them in abstract pieces of any media is a research that enriches our understanding of ourselves.

As an architect, I am interested in how cultures and space transform each other; I believe that space shapes our habits and customs through our adaptation and imitation to the space we interact with. On the other hand, cultures also leave imprints of their traditions and beliefs on space, refining and reshaping it to suite their needs, as a result we turn space into place.

I wouldn't call myself a photographer, I am a conceptual artist who is very interested in photography as a tool to explore my ideas.

I will be glad to have the opportunity to be part of this scholarship, as I see this experience as another door know myself better.

My photos:

I come from an island called Bahrain. Those photos represent the "transformation of memories" the island has gone through:

Memories are our own version of the truth… blurred due to the layering of time and distorted according to our feelings and impressions.

The sea has a new truth that wasn't created by time or emotion. It is travelling further from the mother island as the sand spreads its carpet leaving us and the shore with a new geographical memory.
