Encouraging Words

What is the most formidable challenge for an artist? Mastering the craft, refining the aesthetic sensitivity one might have? None of these is easy. But to keep going despite of all unavoidable self-doubts. That is the toughest of all.

All encouraging words are deeply appreciated.


"Adnan Onart's photographs momentary halt life as it flows all around, and all through us. People talk of a photographer having "a good eye." Adnan has a good heart, and the skill to still bright moments before they are out of sight.”

Rev. Stephen Kendrick, First Church Boston


A daily bus ride alongside history; fluid night in the rainy city;  a riddle of schoolchildren; a shadow as hologram--Adnan Onart captures these with the visions of both photographer and poet. His accompanying commentary then enhances our pleasure in this striking "Room for Light.”

There is joy in your work.
