Musa’s message to the exhibition:
“When I take my camera to create a new picture, each time that my camera flashes, a new journey starts… Every time, when I realize that I have taken a picture, I find myself feeling so weak among others.
I had never thought that I would be documenting so many lives through my camera. They need help because they deserve to be happy like the others; they deserve to have light not darkness.
Each flash of my camera tries to be a light to remove the darkness. I might not have enough ability but I have the ability to share my life with them, to find peace for them.
I am Musa Musavi, a small photographer from the world of war in Afghanistan. I am ready to sacrifice my life for those people who seek peace and to be happy around the world.
Are you ready to sacrifice yours?
With love, Musa.”
Coming soon! More youth directors and advisors!
