“I am quite stunned and overcome with the beauty of your photograph of me. Your use of light, texture and placement makes you an amazing photographer. Your book of landscapes demonstrates magnificently how well you use light. The photograph of me, which is printed now on canvas, is superb. There is no way to thank you adequately for what you have done.”
Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, U.S. Supreme Court
“Freedom, truth, justice, peace and love. Mankind should have access to any one of them. With the divine honesty of words, eyes and soul, Yousef Khanfar’s compelling work urges us to reach out and embrace all five. With a camera and a pen as weapons, he roams the corridors of hatred, evil and injustice—in an attempt to destroy them. In Search of Peace is surely a fitting title. It is also Yousef’s Symphony, one that will forever play hard and deep inside the roots of universal evil.”
Gordon Parks, One of the most influential artists of the 20th century.
“I often wake up in the middle of the night when everything is dark and silent. I turn on an overhead spotlight that casts a small pool of light on the images of my favorite art books. As I slowly turn the pages, if the work is true, I am transported into the emotional field of the artist. I use these midnight sojourns to travel the emotional spectrum. When I want to immerse myself in pure tranquility and view the eloquent images of a Master, I pick up the work of Yousef Khanfar.”
