Afham - understanding
Using the title of the exhibition to speak about my series.
Understanding - in listening, in meeting, in speaking, in seeing
walking through the streets of Lahore, Islamabad and Karachi , walking through the streets of a country we hardly know about.
Pakistan known as a country of terrorism, of war - I decided to see the other side, to feel into the country to meet the people. On each journey to Pakistan I met the people in their daily life in different situations. As soon I entered the streets i felt in love, the smell, the touch, the sound - the beauty of the people. Experiencing so different experiences - meeting smiles - meeting tears - meeting the pain of daily struggle .
My main emotions when I think of the people - I feel a warm welcoming - the smiles remain in my heart making me writing the poetry in seeing to speak about the people I met on my way.
