Saudi Arabia + Iran + Jordan + Turkey, Sep 2021 - Mar2022

Trust in Faces & Places

The selection of faces below showcases my cycling journey through the Middle East, as I traveled through Turkey’s Southeast, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Iran.

I was struck by the remarkable diversity of people and their genuine curiosity and kindness that touched my heart. Would you have expected such diversity, openness, and kindness when thinking of these places?

For me, it is a beautiful realization that core values are the same around the world, regardless of cultural, economic, and social differences. From my experience, I have found that people are inherently good. They possess a natural desire to help and are genuinely curious, just like myself. Through my portraits, I aim to inspire to approach each other with trust and recognize the inherent goodness that exists within us all.
