A Longing Heart series (#1)

by Mohammed Al Hawajri, 2017

3 digital photographs on Hahnemuhle Fineart Baryta paper and sculpture, mixed media

People leave their homelands to seek out their dreams and aspirations, or out of compulsion, escaping the death caused by wars. In the end, we end up far from our beautiful memories that remain preserved in old photo albums, with the faces of friends and family that bring us warmth and make our hearts beat faster in longing for an idyllic past.
