He developed it in last 6 years, while roaming around world.

Little stars on Earth

One of my favorite photographers once told me I should never look far to photograph- photographs are everywhere and I should look to tell stories of my family and neighbors. I am fortunate enough to live in such a neighborhood where skyscrapers and little slums co-exist. Over the past four years, I have photographed my neighbors and their way of living, and that has taught me a few things about life.

Origami: Transforming Paper Into Art

Children all over the world learn to fold paper planes and boats in their elementary school.  This craft of paper folding dates back to 100 AD, when it started in China and spread to Japan by 600 AD.  It is from there where it evolved into what we today know as origami.

The word originated from the Japanese words "ori" and "kami", meaning folding and paper respectively.

Unlike common perceptions, origami is not only a hobby for children, but it is practised by people of all ages.  It has many useful benefits, and it is also a great source of entertainment and enjoyment for the folders.  The pleasure of transforming a plain piece of paper in to a three dimensional beautiful art form can be very satisfying and joyous.

The interest in origami continues to increase even today, intriguing people all around the world.  So what are you waiting for?  Grab a piece of paper and start folding!
