Omer khan grew up in Kabul, studied and graduated from the journalism faculty. His deep passion and love for photography has taken him to different corners of Afghanistan, from the big cities to small villages. He tries to capture not the war that most of our audience is already familiar with but the beauty and glory that exists in his country.
'The reason I always say that photography is my passion is because, it communicates across languages and cultures. I love the process of making a photograph, since I want to tell stories and I'm willing to help people see how beautiful they are. Whatever challenges I face, whatever happens, I would still hold on my camera-- capture the positive and beautiful side of Afghanistan. I want to show the world that there is a small country in the planet with wonderful people with different and wonderful stories live in. I do it for the love and passion I have for my country and people. We have the biggest treasure with us, and that is LOVE. All these things pushes me to work harder spread messages of love through my photographs.'
'The place I live is full of saddened incidents, challenges-- it is disappointing but once a friend of mine has told me that, "When your life feels black and white, make sure you dream colour", and that's what I'm doing.'
