Cancer, Saratān (arabic) or Changār (persian) are all different names for a disease that gives a sudden shock and fright not only to the affected person but also to the people around her/him. Yet, talking about it remains a kind of taboo topic in society. I accompanied my sister in our fight against the disease and whatever was burdening me or gave me hope I drew on papers that were nothing but a mystery for me. Doctors saw a tumor in medical images (sonographies), but I saw fear, I saw doubt, and I heard the scream of silence. The “Changār” collection is the result of this journey.
