BIO 2


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Since my heart started forcing me to make ART my world has never looked the same. tHERE CERTAINLY IS A STRANGE DIALOGUE COMMUNICATING WITH US FROM BEYOND THE PERSONAL SELF. sO IT'S ONE OF MY MISSIONS IN LIFE TO try and TRANSLATE IT WITH A LANGUAGE THE WHOLE WORLD CAN UNDERSTAND.

Since my heart started forcing me to make ART my world has never looked the same. tHERE CERTAINLY IS A STRANGE DIALOGUE COMMUNICATING WITH US FROM BEYOND THE PERSONAL SELF. sO IT'S ONE OF MY MISSIONS IN LIFE TO try and TRANSLATE IT WITH A LANGUAGE THE WHOLE WORLD CAN UNDERSTAND.

 

 

MY NAME IS SHAH ALAMDAR AND I'M A VISUAL ARTIST. BEFORE YOU THINK TO YOURSELF WHAT A NICE CHAP I MUST BE, CLOSE YOUR EYES AND VISUALIZE AN ELDERLY VERSION OF MYSELF EMERGING FROM THE SCRUB, FACE COVERED WITH BATTLE PAINT. MY TATTERED VICTORIA SECRET BIKINI CAN BARELY STAY ON AS I SCREAM RUNNING FULL PELT INTO BATTLE WITH TRUMP'S RADIOACTIVE CHIMP ARMY. THIS IS A MERE UNDERSTATEMENT IN DEFINING MY CALLING TO DO WHAT MY HEART TELLS ME...

Although he's responsible for my endless need to create, it's my legs that are hijacked by the sense of adventure and my inner child who is struggling with a chronic addiction to the addreniline that can only come from behaving badly in public. 

Like most image junkies, I think this world can be such a tease for the eyes. Perhaps one of our greatest challenges is accepting that some things were never meant be photographed, so many of our best images will be taken with our own eyes and that's where they should stay. We should  hold onto them because in the end that's all we'll have.

The panoramic photographs you see in this site are my own serendipitous creation. All made in-camera by double exposing 35 mm film. I absolutely love this process, because taking photos becomes like leaping into the unknown, resulting in a strange photo-essay framing a story being told by my subconscious, reacting to the physical world. 

Anyone who's made from binary cultures may tell you that it's sometimes difficult to own a sense of belonging. My identity is way stronger from the beating its been taking from a young age. In Australia it's customary to nickname, so it was a shock when my Mum sat me down confessing that my name wasn't Shazie-Blaster, "it is actually Faisal Shaheen Dawood Najat Alamdar". Nonetheless the World is a crazy place right now, thankfully the bigger picture sinks in with age.

 

Today I count my lucky stars my heart's still rocking a beat and knowing that somewhere in the world there's a breath of air in the lungs of everyone I love and yet to love. I'm so thankful to call a country like Canada home, where I'm just grateful to be doing what I love, being kind to others and experiencing as mush life as I can so I can rewrite my own version. 

Feel free to shoot me an email if you wish to know more, I'm always open to everyone and love collaborating with different artists  and organisations who are on a similar mission
