Memories of a childhood in a landscape that no longer exists in the way it once was remembered leave one with emptiness. A “rootless” state embraces the identity. An obsession begins to surrender.
An image that frames the landscape becomes the background for the unimaginable.

Zendegi consists of images about the untenable in the landscape of a country that has been drenched
with restlessness of conflict.

It is an attempt to paint a portrait of the geography and its forgotten people
in moments of their daily lives that nonetheless continue despite their struggles. 

These are the evidence of their peaceful existence, as they are the photographs of
the emptiness that exists alongside the reality of war.
