He does, however, offer three wise words, “Practice, practice, practice.” We have all heard this sentence before but have not perhaps appreciated its meaning. Nairooz takes practice further by “reading” other photographers’ work, by looking past the shallow layer of the visual, reading the light, and understanding the implications and emotions that a photograph carries. Nairooz has mastered the art of “looking around” and finding working material wherever he is. As a citizen of Qatar, he works hard to become a pioneer in photography. That, he believes, is the contribution he offers to his country.
