To Write To A Letter

Arfun wants to write a letter. A letter that is yet unwritten, a letter to an unwritten letter. A letter to love, a letter to himself. These photographs, sketches, and texts are the contents of that letter.

When he started working on the project in 2013, it was based upon photographic images only. Trained as a documentary photographer, the images reflected his training. But after a few months, he began including hand-drawn images, then realised he could sketch with his camera the way he did with a brush, pen and charcoal on paper. The concept was the same, only with a different process: through the camera, it was light which became his marker.
