Simple selfie taken quickly

I am Idir Hakim, a photographer exhibited in Germany and soon in the United States. With a diverse background, I am half Kurdish and half Arab, holding French nationality. Currently based in the vibrant city of Paris, I am not only a multilingual individual but also a versatile artist. 

My linguistic repertoire includes fluency in Kurdish, literary Arabic, Turkish, French, and English. This linguistic diversity allows me to connect with people from various cultural backgrounds, enabling me to capture the essence of human experiences through my photography.

Prior to embarking on my artistic journey, I had a successful career as a programmer specializing in C++ and Python. However, my love for the arts eventually took precedence, and I decided to fully immerse myself in the world of photography. It has been an exhilarating 17 years since that pivotal decision, and I have never looked back. 

In addition to being a skilled photographer, I am also an expert in the field of AI for art. Through my work, I train AI models using my own photographs, creating neural networks that produce breathtaking and innovative pieces. By blending real photographs with AI techniques, I aim to push the boundaries of artistic expression and challenge conventional notions of creativity.

 I am deeply involved in politics, although I am not affiliated with any specific party or organization. My political stance leans towards the left, and I strongly oppose extreme right ideologies. I advocate for a social policy that prioritizes the well-being of the people. I have a fondness for socialism, Marxism, and other social values that promote equality and justice. Engaging in conversations and debates with fellow individuals is something I thoroughly enjoy. I relish the opportunity to exchange ideas and engage in stimulating discussions. 

I also despise the traditions that ignite divisions among people. We are living in the year 2023, and I firmly believe that it is crucial to move beyond outdated customs that hinder progress and unity. Embracing a forward-thinking mindset and fostering inclusivity are essential in shaping a brighter future for all.

I must admit that I have an aversion to mediocrity of Midjourney. I am constantly driven to explore new artistic horizons and transcend the limitations of traditional photography. My passion lies in capturing the unseen, evoking emotions, and provoking thought through my unique vision.
