    Research output: Non-Textual OutputDigital or Visual Media


    Research Question; How can a visual researcher address and respond to the personal impact of the current Syrian conflict and the inherent ideological battles within it without resorting to standard forms of war images?

    From Rochester with Love is a short journey in my own place and surroundings while I open my heart to talk about my favourite city and unforgettable memories. The video combines the voice and image of two different and contrasting parts of the world. It is a visit to my world and the world of every refugee or emigrant who had to leave his home country and everything behind to survive. It wonders about the future and embraces the past while having a painful present, which reflects the state of most of the Syrians.
