The photographs of Azim H, who currently lives in NY, United States, are extremely magical and somewhat mysterious because he approaches them as if they were movies.
Through writing and directing, this artist emphasizes the storytelling process, giving context to the character, their environment, and the relationship they have.
His great imagination stems from growing up in Afghanistan, as his parents told him stories of heroic travelers who had extraordinary adventures in the mountains of that country.
It's fascinating that now, as a photographer, the great passion of Azim H is to bring to life the mysteries and myths of his roots through photography.
In his projects he usually recreates, in a quite poetic and aesthetic way, the beautiful and magic creatures that he used to imagine when he was little.
Azim H's family passed down fairy tales from generation to generation, so his dreams are imbued with images from the stories told by his parents and grandparents.
For this photographer, the importance of these stories lies in the fact that they boosted and nurtured his creativity.
It should be noted that he has always been interested in creating a visual link between reality and his inner world. Because of this he loves to give his images a touch dreamlikewithout ceasing to anchor them in reality.
If one observes in detail the images that this artist captures with his camera, one can detect that they are quite influenced by his time in Afghanistan and by the stories he heard there.
Life (and his profession) took Azim H to other parts of the world: Germany, France and the United States, which shaped him in his own way and changed his photographic style, as well as the way he tells stories.
The photographic work of this artist is the best example of how the experiences of the East and the West, where he has lived for decades, can magically merge.
