Year : 2017 - Present

*Section 214(b) of the United States Immigration and Nationality Act is the document issued when a non-immigrant visa application is denied.

In the intricate tapestry of dreams and aspirations, denial often acts as a catalyst for introspection and resilience. My photographic journey, initiated in 2017, unfolds against the backdrop of the United States, a landscape both foreign and alluring. Aptly named "214(B)," this project is deeply rooted in my personal encounter with the complexities of visa processes, a pivotal moment marked by the issuance of Section 214(b) of the United States Immigration and Nationality Act—a symbol of deferred dreams and unforeseen pathways.

Denied the opportunity to pursue my ambitions in the United States in 2015, I embarked on a transformative odyssey, seeking solace and inspiration along the open roads that crisscross this vast nation. Through the lens of my camera, I navigate the nuances of American life, capturing fleeting moments of beauty, resilience, and introspection.

"214(B)" serves as a visual testament to the resilience of the human spirit, transcending borders to explore the universal themes of longing, perseverance, and the pursuit of freedom. Each photograph is imbued with a sense of wanderlust and discovery, inviting viewers to embark on a journey of introspection and exploration.

In the pursuit of my passion, I find solace in the imperfect beauty of every landscape, embracing the freedom and opportunities afforded to me beyond the confines of denial. Through "214(B)," I invite audiences to contemplate the interplay between aspiration and adversity, finding beauty and meaning in the unexpected detours of life's journey.
