Your request to draw you Your longing to pencil you in Perhaps become immortalized By none other than my foolish self, Was quite daunting. How could I make you better? When your words were so defining and enderearing. How could I sketch you seemingly better? A girl perhaps was your request. Your words were already lovely Feminine like. As if your comely words weren’t inviting enough. Signaling for my attention. You, yourself was perfect enough. Instead of a drawing I let nature exemplify Your beauty Your words Your kindness. My submission was my attempt to attract your fluttering self. But to my dismay You stung my heart I must be a masochist to try to capture yours. Tell me, in what sense would you allow me to exist? Could I physically exist alongside you? Not just in your thoughts?
Ideato da Ahmad Aladdin, “1000 Portraits From Sudan” è un progetto fotografico che celebra in modo artistico la diversità etnica (e religiosa) del Sudan.
Le fotografie, perlopiù ritratti di strada, ritraggono donne e uomini nella loro quotidianità; e i loro volti raccontano il presente di una nazione melting-pot, le cui radici affondano nell'incontro tra cultura africana ed araba.
