A few questions to Furqan Aziz
How did you start with photography?
I observed from my childhood that I loved to live near natural places which always inspired me a lot. During my studies I started visiting different places outside my town and captured the beauty of nature, people, culture and places.
Then I started research on how camera may help to express my feelings. I believe I am in born photographer who started capturing with eyes from childhood.
What do you find most enjoying in taking photographs?
As photography is a great distinction in my life I capture the natural beauty in its bloom, to lend the fleeting moments of life eternal. I always want to capture the wonders of nature lying scattered in God’s universe in my eyes and convey this charm ahead, it is the greatest purpose of my life, as this will pave his way to get the realization of God’s existence.
I believe that through my camera I cannot capture and effect those sensations until I feel them before. I consider Photography is such a divine creed which projects the deep layers of my personality, my feelings, sensations and my world view.
Where is your favourite place to shoot?
Every traveler in the world aspires to explore those hidden places which are unveiled from the common eye. I want to tread for not only to capture the essence of beauty but also to weave some unwoven stories. My emphasis is to present the genuine aspects of this stunning daily life, which rely on happines, unity, education, affection, morality and love for nature.
Neelum Valley, Azad Kashmir, Pakistan is my favorite Place to shoot. This valley is one of those places where I found diverse stories which were written on the faces of the people embattling the different phases of this life. The people of valley have restricted resources through which they expend cheerful, unite, responsible pretentious peaceful life. Their daily life is the symbol of optimism which shines in their eyes, taking education with their daily chores of life. As perceive children of valley are certainly anxious about education they believe that education can help to accomplish their visions. I envisioned the faces of innocent people of valley which unveiled their deep down feelings through the windows of their eyes. But on other hand they are still hopeful for New Dawn and they are satisfied with their daily life.
Where do you find your inspiration?
I find inspiration from nature and culture. I strongly believe that everything in the world is created for a reason, even a small piece of stone has its own beauty and story. Nature gives you many messages because it symbolizes the presence of God. I always want to capture the wonders of nature lying scattered in God’s universe in my eyes.
