Khan Hazara
Since arriving in Australia I have worked and studied day and night so I was able to buy a small wholesale bakery. In a few short years I built that into a supermarket. I am passionate about Photography. I always keep my cameras with me when I go out for travelling around the city. My Photography is all about nature and its beauty. I am also passionate about music and arts. I never miss to attend any musical concerts and art exhibitions. Sometimes if I get the opportunity, I write some Hazaragi poetry lines about the Hazaragi culture and about the present situation of Hazaras back in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

I want to learn more about the world around me. Since living in Australia I made a friend who works at the museum. I go to the museum a lot, where they show and teach me many new and exciting things, including aquatics.

Ali Fahdawi

I am a long time about 10 years ago I started to closer pictures of people because of my exposure to injustice over the years. I knew that this important era must be documented, some day these images will be a witness to the injustice. After a while I was asked me newsworthy newspapers and agencies that work with them that they had seen my work on the pages of social networking. I agreed to work with them, but remained closer same axis, which is the people’s lives and their suffering, and I had the honor to join the page sounds a real humanitarian window. I am married Crown four children.

Ali (Ali’s journey series)

aliMy name is Ali (not his real name), and I am currently living in an Indonesian Community Centre in Medan while waiting for the Australian Embassy to process my application for an visa. I miss my wife, sister and children very much, because they are still in Pakistan waiting for me. When I tried to take a boat to Australia we had to turn back, and then I was sent to Tanjung Pinang Detention Centre. I was there for over 20 months. It was a terrible experience. This photo was taken of me doing the “victory” symbol with my hands while behind bars.
