I have my wings back, I can fly.

Abdulazez Dukhan

I needed to make the journey across the water, I needed to struggle and sleep in tents for months, I needed to learn how to wait. I went through all of that to ...be somebody again. I used to be somebody, years ago in my country Syria before the revolution started. When it did, the government didn't consider us people anymore, they treated us as if we were nothing. destroying the country and killing the people and forcing them to leave. People wanted to leave to other countries legally, but with a Syrian passport, we couldn’t easily travel to another country. They all banned us. Some needed visas with impossible terms, some didn't accept us at all. We fled illegally, searching for how to be humans again. I fled trying to somebody again. I needed to travel across water, live in camps, wait and wait for two years. Until today. Today go my passport and felt like I am somebody again.
I am happy to be officially somebody, somebody who has papers with his name on it. I am angry though, angry at such a government forced me to do such a trip out of my country.

I have my wings back, I can fly.

2017 was a different year for me as a photographer. started in Athens and ended in Belgium. Since I left Greece I haven't done lots of photography actually because I still don't know lots of people as I am more a portrait photographer. that pushed me to take photos of streets, natures and other things. here you can find mix of my best photography in 2017.

Thank you for your amazing supports

The theory of beauty

on my journey, I remember seeing different kinds of people with different perspectives in looking at life.
I have seen people, were turning suffering to happiness. no matter where they were. they decided to enjoy every single moment from their limited moments.
Because they knew they couldn't change the situation, they determined to change themselves.

...

Through eyes of some people I have seen the long journey they have passed, I have seen a battle happened between past and future. future won with some of them, but some others future didn't. past did and left them alone with thoughts and memories.
I have seen people struggling and fighting not to fall down. those fought for their children to let them live better, at least better than the life they lived.
do you know when I have felt the beauty? it was those moments that somebody who is not alright telling you that everything will be alright.

I haven't seen beauty in that moments but I felt it.

For some moments I was standing there, looking how busy the street was. Some people were in hurry, some others talk or walk. moments for me weren't 60 seconds, as usual, time went much slower than in reality. I felt every second. My memory was going back and forward. Remembering where I have been and where I am. Sinking in thousands of memories and trying to connect it. Historians say if you look at the past, you will know the present. Do we know the future of our present then?

Mohammad Jamal is one of the most beautiful souls I have seen last year. He has been a paramedic, teacher and amazing friend for everyone.

He gave a talk on a TEDx event a couple of months ago

Take some moments and watch it to know more about his amazing story and his experiences with refugees:...

My interview with VICE about the story of my photography, my project Through Refugee Eyes and about the campaign #IAmMore with Western Union

It's such a happiness to see the voice goes louder.

Read the story if you have time ; )

Abdulazez photography helps bring to life the true reality of what it's like to be a refugee.

Thousands of kids are born in refugee camps, they spend their life there and they don't even see houses.

I saw a kid call Murad, he was two and a half years old and he lived with his family a refugee camp in Greece, while I talked with his father about their journey he told me they lived in camps in Turkey where Murad was born.

Murad hasn't seen house before, and hundreds of thousands of kids don't, too.

...

Refugees will not choose this if they have better solutions.

Think about that
