‘Some people call me the invisible man, but for me it’s what is not seen in a picture which is really what tells the story.
‘After graduating from school I couldn’t find suitable work and I felt there was no place for me in society.
I experienced the dark side of society, without social relations, and had a feeling that no one cared about me, I felt myself unnecessary in this world. From that time, my attitude turned from dependence into revolting against the system.’
