Artist Statement

The boy in the photograph is my student; his name is Sezer. Sezer was born in 2012 with spina bifida. He has had six operations in eight years. With the help of his parents, he can maintain many of his basic living activities, but Sezer is a smart, hardworking and determined child. He wants to play basketball in the Paralympics when he grows up. I hope he achieves everything he wants in his life and is very happy.
