I believe there are two worlds, one physical we live in, the other is subjected to what we might feel or think; a realm somewhere between reality of the physical and fiction of the thoughts.
In a life where travel is persistent, home feelings or belonging could be absent; will sentiments accompanying travel persist? Will wonderful views preserve their glow, or joyful chats keep their promises? An endless train voyage, as it is a journey inside a mind laden with questions and doubts; where reality is not only physical but also fictional.
Q&A with Abdo Shanan
For me photography is not only a reflection of reality as it is , but also the reality as we feel it. In more personal perspective photography is a medium where I reflect on world around me as well as on myself; trying to express my own views on matters in my environment.
Photography and writing…
Because most of my work is intimately personal, writing is an essential part of my work, a fact I have discovered with my series “train of Thoughts”. I believe writing can give photography a whole deferent dimension it gives verbal strength to the visual strength a photograph already have.
Who left the biggest impression on you?
It is not the who that leaves an impression on me it is what the who does.
