A White Spot In The Darkness is a solidarity project grown on the words of Reham, a terribly sad person. Trapped in Syria, all she can dream is about escaping that madness.

I have been for about two and a half years in almost daily contact with her. In all this time we have developed a deep relationship: she has become like my sister. Her pain is deeply rooted on my heart.

With a lot of personal effort and struggle, I have managed to send her several chunks of money to allow her family members to leave the country before her. First her sick father. Her younger brother after that. Later her older brother. Her mom?... dead under the bombs.

The last time I sent her money I was very happy with the idea that soon she would also be out. She crossed the border, she got caught, she was sent back into Syria. She lost the money and all hope...

After that experience she was feeling too embarrassed and hopeless to even talk to me. After insisting I managed to make her talk to me again. She hoped dead, she told me that my efforts to help her it was the only white spot in her total darkness. 

The economical effort to help her has been considerable. I have stretched my creativity: done a solitary rifle with one of my works, place a glass jar in a restaurant to get funds, ask for diverse amounts of money to friends and family, sell some photography equipment and much more. Nowadays I feel that all my possible funding sources have dried up. That's why I start this project hoping that you can help me to help her, hoping that you will become a spot in her darkness too.

I will donate the profits from the sell of this artworks to her. This time I want to have enough for her to get a safer way out, for that I need about 1.500€. Under this text you can find a counter with the amount of money I have collected until now. I offer total transparency. If I manage to run this campaign successfully I will continue the project hoping we can all become more and more white spots in the darkness for other people. I am a person that has simplify his soul to the point to follow only one believe in life, and this is that humanity is about helping each other.

Objective to help Reham: 1500€

about me & the project

In this video, I explain quite much about the project. Check it out! 

I also admire how you use nature as a symbol of the healing process. […] I appreciate how you included your personal philosophy and experiences with these images, as it conveys how humanity can find solace and healing through looking at the circle of life within nature.” 

Lens Culture Review

10 principles that move my life

Humanity is about helping each other

I did not come into existence to live in permanent stress and anxiety

We belong to Nature, not the other way around

Education is a form of inspiration, not an imposition

My one and only mission as a creative person is to keep the channel open

Everybody is a creative person, but creativity requires cultivation.

“We don’t need more troubles, what we need is love”

We heal by feeling connected to ourselves, to our community and to Nature

I came into existence to cultivate joy, not suffering

Ubuntu: Only when everybody wins, I win

    become a white spot in the darkness too
