Cutting the brain


I'm interested in visual arts majors, especially cinema studies (film production specifically), and photography. 
I've always been experimenting in different visual arts at school and during my first two years of college in Syria. I've had several professional experiences and trainings in photography and participated in the making of more than 3 short movies. I was a licensed photographer by the Syrian Ministry of Culture since 2009; worked in a local magazine as a photographer in 2011-12, and participated in several photography exhibition, of which one was in Belgium - after the selection of 3 of my photos to be displayed in the exhibition on Women and Revolutions in the Arab world, held by Aswa Concours in Brussels in December 2013.   

My professional and personal plan is to enter the domain of film direction and produce documentaries and short movies that shed light on the many social and cultural issues in post-revolution Syria. I hope to be able to contribute positively and critically in the debate about the post-war society, the rebuilding efforts, public issues, and to help in building a critical democratic culture of which artistic creation and production is essential. Documentaries, and all arts play a crucial role in such process, especially that Syria lacked this kind of contribution from the artistic field in the past. 

On the personal level, my plan is to work on perfecting both my photography skills and film production, and get a university degree that would all help me to be able to work and sustain myself and help out my parents back home who suffered from displacement and loss in the recent events. 
 
my point is sharing my works in several countries with different cultures and attitudes and that's the main objective of the exhibition which i intend to do.
My photography includes surrealism, abstraction, symbolism .in my last project "scissors"i took so many ideas surrounding us visibility, but in my photography i made it invisibly, to let the Viewer taking the idea by itself from the scene .

my real point , the truth behind my conceptual photography for sure is very personal-social in the same scene..
 
finally, my work it's way to explain myself in artistic way .. It's a personal experiences inside the war and after in the exile.
