Too painful, too scary, too unknown, too far away – Photography of War

War is one of those subjects most of us find ourselves choosing to forget. Too painful, too scary, too unknown, too far away – for myriad reasons, we close up our minds to the possibility of war, or, as the future days may have it, the reality of it.

I started photography as a hobby in 2005, during college. My passion slowly became a more important part of my life since 2008. Because of using a combination of my photographic knowledge, with those of internet marketing, I like to call myself a "photomarketer".
