''Louie Schwartzberg, the cinematographer, director and producer of award-winning nature documentaries, believes that the kind of pictures we take says a lot about who we are on the deepest level.''

I couldn't agree more for I strive to capture the beauty in everyone, the beauty of the natural world and to share ''Colour My World''.

This picture was taken in Damascus, Syria, at the market.  This was a series of shots on the same frame, hence this almost abstract image.  Tinted Silver Gelatin Print - date: 2004

The Gift of Grace and Words of Grace

These images were created from my Al-Kalimah (The Word) series.  The original black & white image was taken at the Alhambra in Spain, the second layer is an image of Arabic calligraphy and finally, the last image is a portrait of a young woman in London who reminded me of the famous Mona Lisa or in French, La Joconde.  

The reason I chose to blend these images is that I find Arabic calligraphy beautiful and refined like the beauty of a woman, so fragile yet so strong.  I have the impression that humanity will move forward once women will take their rightful place in the world.
