"Every time I take a walk, I absorb the visual elements around me, capturing them like a camera and transforming them into a story. My eyes help me interpret my surroundings, like a camera creates the frame for a photo. My reality through my eyes has a cinematic quality to it; that helps me to transform reality to the movie project." Omid.
