This project is referred to the experience of my military service in the paratrooper brigade. It is coped with increasing concern of my blurring memory long away from military service.

Those photos were taken after I’d been exposed to the service. Back in past gave me a sober look into the elapsed time and exposed me to my self-awareness that I developed over time. Those photographs seek to recall my experience. From the first glance, the photos look innocent but if you look carefully, you can feel the sense of belonging and brotherhood. Being strangers once, we’ve become one family.

Visual language seeks to be clean and adapts to the reality. It seems that there is an attempt to recall the action or object and give them a new meaning through photography.
