Hansa's Perspective

- click on any picture for a single image view -

Hansa's love for photography started as a little girl and has grown as the girl grew. Most of her photos reflect encounters and moments shared with people along her path. She has always wanted to capture and share glimpses of different people's realities, as a wish for a greater understanding and acceptance among humans toward each other. She tries to capture the essence, the light and the love...in people, in the stillness as well as movement, in all sacred moments of this life. Most of the pictures that you see here are raw images, unprocessed...
