This weekend Sukru Mehmet Omur, an Award Winning Mobile Photographer chronicles his enviable journey with us. Upon viewing Omur’s text and images, the renderings of human emotions seamlessly weave into a graphic perspective. Personally, I sense happiness in Omur’s work and thus it allowed me to recall Henri Matisse’s manifest for happiness, that he created in the early years of the 20th century. Matisse was affluent so in 1905 he was bold enough to flaunt his happiness. He was ridiculed by Picasso and others for his ‘happy art’ but he stuck to his guns. Omur much like Matisse knows that happiness is a human right and he speaks up for it exquisitely.
