The series I’m working on at the moment is about mapping the journey of this particular person. The sequenced images are a constructive narrative based on Baktash’s life story. He left his homeland Afghanistan to seek civil peace, a concept almost foreign to him. He tells his story to the audience as he attempts to live and prosper as a Torontonian.
Inspired by Jim Goldberg, I will be using Baktash’s hand writing in Perso-Arabic text where he will be writing a brief recollection from his own memory on the images.
The intention of this mapping series is to put forth an in-depth view of new immigrants in Toronto.
However, the text and the rest of the images are still in progress :)
