Triptych Series

She blooms and grows with every single thorn that the nature brings to her......

This collection of pictures are my relationship to the nature, taken from 2018 onward.


Back in 2000, I started portraying my life. Before, I used to have a diary for ten years in which I was writing about my everyday life, dreams and emotions. When I started shooting myself, I did not write anymore. 

The first series of my photographs are taken back home, filled with a variety of emotions, influenced by the society, companions, family and love. The second series are taken in 2015 when I left my homeland in search of a new life. The pictures are so blurred, as my life here in Canada. And the last series are taken in 2019; the dreamland is beautiful, still vague though.

Life in Calendar

With every sunrise, I may have different feelings which can totally differ in the sunset. 

On the first day of August 2015, I stepped on a different land which was too far from my homeland and I had to get used to different names on the map. 

This collection of pictures shows what I have been experiencing as an immigrant during each month since then. 

These 48 canvases symbolize the forty eight months that I have lived in this wonderland each including a phrase which shows how I was experiencing my new life in that month.
