A book of 115 selected images from a retired Police Officer’s photographic odyssey spanning over thirty years. The photographs are accompanied by an autobiographical text and a brief marginal narrative with images shot since 1985. A late bloomer Sami, is a self-taught photo-artist who learnt his craft dividing time between personal commitments and official obligations.
The canvas of Sami’s art is wide-ranging. His striking pictorial images portray different times, moods, emotions, seasons and colours. The diverse subjects he chooses to shoot are not pre-conceived. He goes out and clicks the shutter only when something pleases his eye, heart and mind. What he has tried to explore through his images is the creative and aesthetic perspective of our everyday life. Having lived part of his childhood in a village, he holds special affinity for it which explains several rural and cultural life images in the book.
