My recent photography series titled The Red Zone including 9 images which has been photographed and montaged between 2013 to 2015. The series has been formed with my perceptions of changes and turmoil in the Middle East and more to influence and intervention of foreign forces in this region of the world which in various forms in the context of these communities and their effects reveal problems like war, immigration, asylum seekers and issues that I tried to reflect them with my own personal Imaginations.
