My beginnings with film photography
I began film photography for a spilt second when my mother bought me my first camera at age 7. I never had a chance again to go back to it after our lives were turned upside down due to war and my first forced displacement at age 9 in 1990.
During my art residency in Lorient in 2021 – 2022, I finally got that chance again and I began experimenting. Unfortunately the printing process triggered both my asthma and skin allergies to chemicals. I found at least after developing my negatives (which is my favorite part – the excitement of anticipation and discovering how my photos turned out) the way to share them for now is via scanning them.
Here you will find some of my favorites.
