Stories from journeys
Each experience detonates a new passion
It was said that “the love of experiencing reaches a pinnacle during adolescence and decreases with age as fear increases.” It seems to me that this is indeed the general rule and this is the reigning character for most people... However, with each passing day, my passion and love for exploration are increasing, and so is my desire to acquire a greater experience and to live through more experiments until I began “examining” ever piece of information that could lead me somewhere new. Travelling and wandering, learning people’s traditions, getting to know people’s characters, walking in the villages’ alleys, and reminiscing through the camera’s memory: This is a passion of which I don’t wish to be cured.
Events are constantly renewing...

However, I came to realize that it actually started when I got back!
For this reason, I executed this special digital file that was broadcasted via smart phones. Through this file’s pages, I made sure to transmit some of the things I’ve seen with the hope they might make their broken voice heard as it says: “Stop the war.”
